Dawn McCarthy and Bonnie Billy team up, give modernized props to Everly Bros.
February 19th marks the release of What The Brothers Sang, a collaborative album between Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Faun Fables' Dawn McCarthy. The record is a series of covers of Everly Brothers songs, but instead of merely covering the tracks, Billy and McCarthy give the songs a fresh spin, in a way that only they can.
The legendary Everly Brothers accumulated a massive catalogue of songs during their 50+ years career, but What The Brothers Sang manages to catch many of the gems. The record includes songs such as "Kentucky," "Empty Boxes," "Milk Train," "Somebody Help Me," and "Omaha," with Billy and McCarthy's weaving vocals creating a renewed sense of the Americana utopia that the harmonizing brothers captured so perfectly in their music.
Numerous notable artists are featured on the record as well, including Emmett Kelly, Dave Roe, Kenny Malone, Matt Sweeney, Pete Townsend, Nils Frykdahl, and Noah Tag, to name a few. Click here for pre-ordering info and check out a video of the making of the album (with sneak peeks of songs!) below.
