Album: Dawn McCarthy & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, What the Brothers Sang (Domino)

The brothers are the Everlys, Dawn McCarthy is the singer and creative force behind Californian psych-folkers Faun Fables, and Bonnie "Prince" Billy is, oh you know, Bonnie "Prince" Billy.

Despite what the sleeve might suggest, the songs within are all afforded the utmost respect. Don't expect the 20 Golden Greats, though (only one song from that album makes the cut here). But this is heartfelt, sweetly sincere and as good an album as BPB has made for some time.
