The Brothers Comatose (from the album Ink, Dust & Luck available on Antifragile Music)
Harmonizing on one wish, The Brothers Comatose stare out the tour van windshield looking to see the sun and surf as they feel the love of their native California and the hearts waiting there calling in “Get Me Home”. The song is what a touring band gets as a parting gift from a life lived on the road. Ink, Dust & Luck chugs with road rhythms as The Brothers Comatose snatch stories from daily life with “As the Crow Flies”, put a Bluegrass stomp underneath “Don’t Make Me Get Up and Go” as the band resist rising, and rattle strings for the personal resume of “These Ways”.
Producer John Vanderslice recorded Ink, Dust & Luck direct to two-inch analog tape, The Brother Comatose guitarist/lead vocalist Ben Morrison recalling that ‘for the first time, every single band member contributed songs to the album. We took the old school, just straight to tape approach, and I think the raw energy really shines through. Vanderslice is a madman in the studio, we couldn’t have done this recording without his genius intuition supporting us all the way through’. Ink, Dust & Luck tenderly picks out love notes for the high desert in “Joshua Tree”, tumbles on a Folksy sway through “Cedarwood Pines”, and measures “Love by Degrees” on sharp chord strums while The Brothers Comatose duet with Nicki Bluhm, each taking a side in “Sugar Please”.
