Dawn McCarthy and Bonnie Prince Billy sound quite beautiful singing together. This album is incredibly well executed and there’s clearly a love for the Everly Brothers songs they’ve chosen to cover. “Breakdown” which opens the album starts softly with McCarthy on lead vocal. The song swells into a great chorus with the pair singing together for the first time. The album is mostly ballads, and they are good – “Devoted To You”, “Empty Boxes” and “Poems, Prayers and Promises” in particular. However, the stand out tracks here are the pair of punchy pop songs, “Milk Train” and in particular, the fabulous “Somebody Help Me”. This may not appeal to all Will Oldham fans due to the lack of his twisted and wonderful lyrics but his voice is great.
