Description

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. Desperado" "Please Don't Call Me Crazy" "See It Through" All songs from the Cactus Blossoms album, Easy Way, out March 1, 2019, on Walkie Talkie Records. Hosted by Bill DeVille Produced by Derrick Stevens Engineered by Johnny Vince Evans Visuals by Nate Ryan Web feature by Luke Taylor.

Please Don't Call Me Crazy, 03:06. Got a Lotta Love, 03:02.

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.

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. Like the Eagles, the Cactus Blossoms are fully aware and in touch with their roots, where they are not content to live in that past, yet bring those vibes into the present, conjuring more sophisticated instrumentation and delivery, sounding resoundingly warm and envisioned. Yet when all is said and done, Easy Way is infused with not only mild sweet alternative country influences, but is deeply laced with R&B, along with Muscle Shoals flavors that are simply captivating. Of course there are those who would say without hearing Easy Way, that this is all style and no substance, which is just about as far from the truth as one could get, as the essential purity and artistry, where this duo bring to life songs defined and textured by melodies, that haven’t been heard on this planet for a very long time.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 slips back under the sheets, all of which makes Easy Going a late night adventure … though one very suitable for the warmth of vinyl.*** The Fun Facts: The Cactus Blossoms are in reality brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkum, with differing last names as they are half-brothers.The album is available on clear and black coloured vinyl, along with the compact disc.Review by Jenell Kesler(Advance Copy for Consideration)
