Despite busy careers (and lives), the combined members of Living Sisters -- Inara George, Becky Stark, Eleni Mandell, and new member Alex Lilly -- managed a 2013 covers EP that complements Love to Live, their unique 2010 LP. Boasting all the warmth and easy sense of acoustic swing shown earlier, Run for Cover also combines just a little bit of naughty with a little bit of nice in much the same way as Love to Live. There may be nothing as explicit as "Double Knots" (i.e., "my baby ties me up in double knots"), but a version of the languid pop hit "Make Love to Me" certainly approaches the same territory. Aside from natural choices including Doris Day's biggest hit, Dolly Parton's often-covered "Jolene," and two less well-known Patsy Cline numbers, the quartet stretches out for one song, a cover of Funkadelic's "Can You Get to That?" Light and pleasant, Run for Cover is also backed by a band that knows how to accompany all this vocal loveliness.
