The Cactus Blossoms – Minneapolis-based blood harmony brother duo Page Burkum and Jack Torrey – have announced their new album Easy Way, to be released March 1 on their own Walkie Talkie Records. The album is the follow-up to their stunning 2016 debut You’re Dreaming, which NPR’s All Things Considered hailed for its “creative turns of phrase, gorgeous harmonies, and ageless sound.” That album preceded a number of milestones for The Cactus Blossoms including tours with Kacey Musgraves and Lucius, performances on prestigious stages ranging from Newport Folk to Lincoln Center, and a perfectly cast appearance on the third season of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks.
Produced by the brothers and recorded at Reliable Recorders in Chicago, Easy Way features ten new, original songs, and a number of special contributors including Dan Auerbach who co-wrote two tracks, plus Michael Lewis (Bon Iver, Andrew Bird) on saxophone and Joel Paterson (Devil in a Woodpile) on pedal steel.
Rolling Stone premiered the first track, the jagged garage-soul burner, “Please Don’t Call Me Crazy” which “finds the twosome pulling back from the more delicate, early country melodies and scuffing up their sound in Roy Orbison-meets-Television style.”
