***BACK IN STOCK!!! Received a 7.0 rating from Pitchfork. As children, the music of The Everly Brothers touched DAWN MCCARTHY and BONNIE PRINCE BILLY; it touches Dawn’s children and the little ‘prince’ within Bonny today, and makes them dance and sing. The Brothers’ harmonies make the hairs stand up—they enervate and inspire. Beyond the visceral impact of any one song, any “So Sad” or “Devoted to You” that rings out from the radio on any given day, there is also the tracks that The Brothers trod over the course of several decades of singing together and making records. They didn’t stand still and neither did their songs. And so, What the Brothers Sang is no mere gesture of nostalgia; these new versions rethink The Everly Brothers for the audience of listeners today, people who naturally might have no knowledge or experience with those songs. What the Brothers Sang is made with deep respect for, is inspired by The Everly Brothers, but it pays tribute by being a record that only Dawn and Bonnie could make, and only in the room with the players that had come to join them. Their duets are a sensuous display of give and take that includes everything that’s resonating in the room, every surface that’s being pressed or rubbed or hit is a part of the action. Their harmonies are in the tradition, but they are their own, not cutting-on-the-dotted-line of Everly magic. No Export to Europe. No CD export to Hong Kong, Japan, or Australia.
