Album at a glance: The Harmed Brothers – Better Days

Harmed Brothers - Better Days

The Harmed Brothers are a troubadoring folk-bluegrass outfit from Oregon with local ties. Their songs jab and slice at the soul with an arsenal of banjo picking and stern acoustic strums. The mood on Better Days shifts throughout the 10 songs. The album starts strong with “When You See Me” as one of the faster paced songs. The title track “Better Days” is a true centerpiece, full of hooks and well thought out reflection. A couple songs even reach the far side of the six minute mark but The Harmed Brothers keep them in check and avoid monotony. The banjo takes a featured role on almost all the tracks on Better Days giving the record an unusual and pleasant twist.
