Dawn McCarthy And Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - What The Brothers Sang

Essential for any fan of Americana
Dawn McCarthy And Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - What The Brothers Sang

Dawn McCarthy’s voice, clear and joyous as a spring morning, intertwines with Will Oldham’s woody tone creating something extraordinary; old school country in the very best  sense. Backed by an enviable  cast of master musicians, it drips with quality. No mere covers, these interpretations of the Everly Brothers make each song sound as fresh as the day it was written. It’s no exaggeration to suggest their harmonies conjure the sweet sounds of Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter. ‘Milk Train’ with its unstoppable freight and the heartbreaking ‘It’s All Over’ are highlights, essential for any fan of Americana. As pure and rich as milk and honey.

8/10
