The Cactus Blossoms perform 'Desperado' from their 2019 album, 'Easy Way,' live in The Current studio.
Album Easy Way. Easy Way Lyrics.
On Easy Way, The Cactus Blossoms have not only revived the style and attitude of the Everly Brothers, but their spirit as well, as brothers Page and Jack deliver a solid set of old school breezy easygoing and often plaintive laid back numbers that ride with confidence and assuredness. The boys dance right between several well known artists, as their signature harmonies come across with a rich fullness, instantly taking me back to what the Eagles do on their more intoxicating numbers, where for the first time I’m now considering how much that band also owes to the Everly Brothers. If there are any shortcomings at all, it’s that each of their low-keyed rockers is followed by an slow-dance ballad, which is fine, it’s just that the album never seems to get out of bed, yes, it sits up and fluffs the pillows on numbers such as Please Don’t Call Me Crazy and See Through It, but then.
With the album now ready to go, the Cactus Blossoms are thrilled to put it out into the world. Ahead of its release, the full lineup of the Cactus Blossoms - frontmen Jack Torrey and Page Burkum along with Tyler Burkum and Jake Hanson on additional guitars, Phillip Hicks on bass, and Jeremy Hanson on drums - stopped at The Current studio to play songs from the new album and to chat with host Bill DeVille.

The Cactus Blossoms - Minneapolis-based blood harmony brother duo Page Burkum and Jack Torrey - return with new album Easy Way, a self-produced collection of ten new originals on their own Walkie Talkie Records. Featuring special contributions from Dan Auerbach and renowned saxophonist Michael Lewis (Bon Iver, Andrew Bird), Easy Way expands on the creative turns of phrase, gorgeous harmonies, and ageless sound (NPR) they're known and loved for to deliver something new and distinctly modern

Easy Way seems to be an appropriate title for the sophomore set from the Cactus Blossoms, a Minneapolis-based brotherly duo who make no effort to disguise their enduring debt to the Everly Brothers. Like You're Dreaming before it, Easy Way leans into harmonies that recall Don and Phil, supporting this soft, supple blend with sounds that evoke a time before the Beatles.
The cover art of Easy Way, the latest album from Minneapolis folk duo the Cactus Blossoms, is a tad misleading. Its image finds brothers and bandmates Page Burkum and Jack Torrey walking in opposite directions, as if strangers passing each other on the street without a second thought. But despite each bringing their unique spin on the genre, the Cactus Blossoms are entirely in sync, using their trademark layered harmonies to craft a sophomore album (with a little help from Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys) that’s every bit as refreshing as it is intimate
Album-opener ‘Desperado’ sounds like it’s straight from the 50s: a steady, plodding vintage track, something that’d be at home playing in an old school American diner. From there, ‘I’m Calling You’ has a beat that reminds you of Roy Orbison’s ‘Pretty Woman’, but slowed way down. As a song it’s a bit lacklustre, even though it feels quite dark in topic: imagine being that person calling an ex all night between 2am-7am with no answer. Title track ‘Easy Way’ really showcases the Phil-Everly-style soaring harmonies: it’s fascinating how similar The Cactus Blossoms can sound to these brothers from another era. This track has a laid back vibe to it and the lyrical repetition of Love’s an easy way, what else can I say? adds to its soothing nature. Boomerang’ is another trippy, relaxed number, it feels reminiscent of The Beatles, with vocal delivery very similar to John Lennon.
