“Let It Lie” is the new album from Canadian alt-rockers The Bros. Landreth. The band itself is a tight outfit poised to take the country scene by storm but just underneath that lies the true talent of, not just true musicians, but author poets that can take a life experience and make it an aural work of art. Think Eagles with a purpose (early Eagles) back when the music mattered. “Let It Lie” is 11 tracks of no filler which can be listened to from start to finish and makes a musical journey into Americana. This would be an excellent album to travel down the highway with and create life moments for each song to be a soundtrack to and that is a rare thing nowadays.
About The Bros. Landreth:
Let It Lie was recorded in a straw bale house in southern Manitoba, during one of the coldest winters in recent memory. Working with producer Murray Pulver, The Bros. Landreth found warmth in the songs that Joey and David had written at home, brewing up an earthy, earnest sound that has since drawn comparisons to The Band, The Allman Brothers and Jackson Browne.
Bonnie Raitt who first heard them at the Winnipeg Folk Festival this summer says, “I haven’t liked a band as much as The Bros. Landreth in a long time. To hear this kind of funky, southern style rock played with such originality and soul will knock you out.”
The new album has been embraced in Canada with the Winnipeg Free Press applauding the band’s “blues rock [songs] resplendent with soulful harmonies as golden and warm as the late evening sun.”
Trisha Yearwood, who recently heard Let It Lie shares, “The Bros Landreth. Wow! I hear so many sounds I love. They mix southern rock, soul, and country together effortlessly. These guys are making great music from the heart. I can’t stop listening.”
Album highlights like “Our Love,” “Firecracker” and “Nothing” were all inspired by a string of rocky relationships, but Let It Lie is more than a breakup album. Filled with mid-tempo rockers, butter-smooth ballads and cowboy lullabies, it’s the sort of album that finds inspiration not only in the landscape of the human heart, but also the windswept prairies that stretch for hours on every side of Winnipeg’s city limits. The music is steeped in the history and heritage of the band’s hometown, and if it sounds wintry at times, that doesn’t mean it’s not downright lovely.
The will be announcing further UK shows for October shortly.
