The Barr Brothers stopped by the CPR Performance Studio a few weeks ago, and now we have a free download for you from their latest album "Sleeping Operator"
This latest release could very well be the breakout record for Montreal group The Barr Brothers (named for siblings Andrew and Brad, both formerly of The Slip). Embellished by the voice and harp work of Sarah Page and guest contributors like Richard Reed Parry of Arcade Fire, "Sleeping Operator" takes folk into new, entrancing atmospheres on songs like "Half Crazy" and "Even the Darkness Has Arms" by incorporating Delta blues and West African rhythms. Not to say there aren't a fair share of memorable plaintive moments, such as standout "How the Heroine Dies," but "Sleeping Operator" is certainly never asleep behind the wheel.
Grab your free download of the song "Love Ain't Enough" above.
