EDITORS’ NOTES

When Brad Barr sings, “The dream you dream of falling/Out of the blue, child,” on “You Would Have to Lose Your Mind,” the raw vulnerability of his voice transports us to a hospital bedside. Steady, rhythmic drumming and delicate harp even mimic the almost hypnotic hum of a hospital room. It’s a track that showcases The Barr Brothers’ masterful storytelling: sincere, soulful, and utterly immersive. Weaving tales of forgiveness and family with folk, blues, Americana, and Malian street music, each song on Queens of the Breakers is a new page to turn.

Keep getting better

I’m a long time fan of Brad and Andrew since there days with the SLiP. There latest effort along with Sarah is absolutely superb. The songs are so well crafted and Brads song writing has gone from good to excellent to exquisite over the last 2 decades. I’m really in love with this album after just a few listens. Standouts are Someday Maybe, Queen of the Breakers and Kompromat. Spend the $10 and support these guys and gal. You’ll be happy you did. Cheers.
