A big thanks to Laura for the tip on The Barr Brothers.
They’re a band from Montreal made up of Brad and Andrew Barr (founding members of Boston avant-rock trio The Slip), in collaboration with harpist Sarah Page and bassist Miles Perkin. The results is aself-produced, self-recorded labor of love. A ten song album written in Montreal in a city full of strangers, lovers, old ghosts and new friends, and recorded in a makeshift studio in an old boiler room at the foot of Mount Royal. Also performing on the record is Elizabeth Powell from Land of Talk and Emma Baxter.
I’m excited to hear the full-length. So far, I’ve just been able to hear a few on their homepage. “Beggar In The Morning” stood out for me the most, definitely recommended for fans of Avett Brothers (I and You and Love).
**If the track isn’t showing up for you via Soundcloud (isn’t for me), you can hear the song here.
