All week long, we the Drag City simply stayed in bed! Why? Cause it's just too nice rolling around in some sweet Everly Brothers covers made by Dawn McCarthy & Bonny Billy to get up and get out into mid-February- or any month, for that matter! Whether it's romping to the pleading revelry of "Somebody Help Me," or snuggling up with the harmonious, patient transcendence of "Omaha," What The Brothers Sang, the freshly released long-player from Dawn McCarthy & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, warms and consoles us in ways familiar, yet they're ways that feel... fuck-utterly new! These ain't your ol' grandad's Everlys, either: Dawn n' Bon dig deep into tracks from unique 'n' underrated Everly eras, culling songs from the 50's, 60's and 70's (your personal favorite decade!) and updating them in a decidedly current form, using the magic of harmony, woman/man style, to render them their own. It's a quilt we can't keep far from our naked shoulders, and one under which you should slip o'er your own person, a friend or two (or four), and anything else you might need for the foreseeable future if you haven't done so already. What The Brothers Sang obliges to keep you warm throughout all your bad times, and massage your good vibe trips- hop in bed with The 'Prince,' The Faun, and all the gang they've brought, with song!
