Album Review: Dead Rock West – It’s Everly Time (9/10)


DeadRockWest-600wideOn the fifth album for the alt-country duo, Cindy Wasserman and Frank Lee Drennen authentically cover a wide cross-section of classic Everly Brothers. From hits like “Cathy’s Clown” and “Let it Be Me” to rarities such as “June is as Cold as December,” they offer a treasure of harmonic delights. Wasserman and Drennen’s chemistry seeps into one’s consciousness. And the studio band features members from Lou Reed, X, The Blasters and The Cars. The result is a live-session vibe like there used to be when giants like The Wrecking Crew ruled the roost. – Eric A. Harabadian
