Editors’ Notes

The fans of Cary Brothers who gushed over his swooning and romantic cover of The Thompson Twins’ “If You Were Here” (from 2007’s Who You Are) and his moving take on Level 42’s “Something About You” (from 2010’s Under Control) are in for a treat. Brothers indulges his knack for turning the other peoples' songs into his own with Covers, Vol. 1, an EP that hints at future follow-ups. He opens with INXS’s “Never Tear Us Apart,” laying the guitar reverb on thick and the dramatically impassioned singing even thicker.

Saving the best for last, Brothers turns Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World” into a seductive electro-indie ballad with slightly distorted singing.
