Three years after their last release, The Barr Brothers have emerged from isolated recording sessions in a remote Canadian cabin with their finest album to date. Queens of the Breakers is the rewarding result from writing and recording without any advance preparation for the first time, a musical blank slate that allowed the trio to create such imaginative genre blends and captivating melodies. The global pulse of "Kompromat"; the beautiful, muted psych-folk of "You Would Have to Lose Your Mind"; the hypnotic opener "Defibrillation," which features Luciusthe entirety of Queens deserves slow exploration and sincere openness. If Queens earns The Barr Brothers serious consideration for year-end lists, it would not be surprising. (
