Biography

One of the first Christmas presents that Brad and Andrew Barr received were two pairs of red boxing gloves. They set up a makeshift ring in their basement in Providence, RI and hung a bell from the water pipes. When the bell rang, it was the signifier that all rules of decent brotherly conduct were suspended for 3 minutes. It was the one time they could unleash the latent fury of being bound ...

Product Description

Recorded in their makeshift studio in an old boiler room at the foot of Mount Royal, the ten song album debut album was written over the course of the brother's time in a city full of strangers, lovers, old ghosts and new friends. Along with Sarah and Andres, the record also features Miles Perkin (Lhasa DeSela), Elizabeth Powell (Land of Talk), Nathan Moore, Jocie Adams (The Low Anthem), Elvis Perkins and Emma Baxter. It reads like a dusty journal of a traveler at the crossroads of good and evil. Hushed Americana lonesome and future-primitive delta blues clear the path for West African polyrhythms and classical motifs. It’s all tied together by the commitment to the sources of the styles and their inherent connections to each other.

This quality of this album is hard to express in a text box. Suffice to say if you're a fan of quality songwriting, poetic and moving lyrics and some of the most atmospheric and beautiful music I've heard in a long time then I guarantee you will enjoy immensely.

If you do enjoy this album (of you course you will) then you might also enjoy their British but unknown equivalent. They're called Takeda. Especially their first album Hufsa. Check it out.

Caught this band backing Patrick Watson and was impressed enough to see them headline in London recently. Subsequently bought the album and confirmed for me my earlier impressions. Four talented musicians (from Montreal Canada I believe), including a harpist amongst their number, they produce what I suppose could be classified as a mix of folk and americana. Ranges from delicately performed quieter numbers to full on guitar based rockier efforts but all performed to a high standard. Love the subtlety of the harp on the slower numbers. An enjoyable and fulfilling album.

This has been in my car stereo for ages and I never get bored of it - that's a sign of quality music! Every track has its own personality with diverse echoes of Leonard Cohen, Simon and Garfunkel, Moby, Led Zeppelin, Ali Farka Toure and The Grateful Dead! And yet they all sound like The Barr Brothers! Get it, you won't regret it!

I am new to The Barr Brothers , having heard them on the radio. Takes me back to the 1960's with wonderful acoustic music, lyrics with a dreamy / mystical quality. Crystal clear voices
