Cactus Blossoms - You're Dreaming
Brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkum of the Cactus Brothers say they didn't set out to make vintage country brother-act harmonies. But if their new album, You're Dreaming, is anything to judge by, they couldn't have done it any better if they'd tried. Their high-lonesome vocals are as pure and wistful as anything that ever came out of the Everley Brothers or even the Louvin Brothers. But it's important to note, these guys aren't just recreating grampa's rock & roll, they are making it their own, staying true to the sound while putting their own contemporary sensibilities into it. The arrangements are as simple as you can get, never overpower the vocals, and brain piercing all at once.
I'm adding "Stop Light Kisses," "Queen Of Them All," "Clown Collector," and "If I Can't Win" to rotation.
