The Barr Brothers: “Even the Darkness Has Arms”

By: Lauren Jahoda

KEXP premiered The Barr Brothers’ newest single this morning, entitled “Even the Darkness Has Arms” off their sophomore LP, Sleeping Operator, arriving October 7, 2014 (Secret City Records).

For the not-so-familiar, there’s a chance you’ve heard The Barr Brothers’ most popular track “Beggar in the Morning” and just don’t know it yet. If not, you have a lot of material to catch up on prior to today’s premiere. The Barr Brothers are a perfect addition to add to your driving playlist for this weekend’s getaway.

The Barr Brothers will be playing both Friday and Sunday during Pickathon, which I’ll be attending the first weekend in August.

I recommend listening to “Even the Darkness Has Arms” through the Soundcloud link on KEXP’s website, rather than through YouTube (both included below). The Soundcloud audio is much better.
