The Brother Brothers (from the album Cover to Cover available on Compass Records) (by Danny McCloskey)
Sibling harmonies are the stuff of legend. The Brother Brothers raise the bar, their high-low harmony entering the rarefied range of fellow brothers The Everlys. Cover to Cover, their recent release, showcases The Brother Brothers behind the microphones singing their stuff on familiar tracks from some of their personal faves. The Moss brothers chose to kick things off with a Tom T. Hall cut, beginning the song cycle in Cover to Cover with “That’s How I Got to Memphis”. The tone of their harmonies color the tunes with the needed emotion for the storyline when The Brother Brothers blend voices to mirror the introspection of Jackson Browne’s “These Days”, the sad lost hope wishes of Richard Thompson’s “Waltzing for Dreamers”, or the unbridled heart-happy joy of Robert Earl Keen’s “Feelin’ Good Again”.
Friends in the form of female vocals appear on Cover to Cover alongside The Brother Brothers. Hoagy Carmichael’s “I Get Along Without You Very Well (Except Sometimes)” gets an acapella treatment accompanied by the airy trills of Rachael Price while Sarah Jarosz shares in the tender loving of James Taylor’s “You Can Close Your Eyes” and Michaela Anne helps climbs the heights of “High Sierra”. Songwriters from across the decades are fodder for The Brother Brothers as they nod to Judee Sill with “There’s a Rugged Road” and close out Cover to Cover with Tom Waits’ “Flower’s Grave”.
