Album Review

Genius or lunacy — take your pick. But either way, give credit to Aaron Weiss and gang for another unique taste of Christian indie rock sentiment. In more of his half-shouting, stream-of-consciousness style, Weiss throws any sense of traditional song form out the door. Lyrically speaking, Brother, Sister is more cryptic and nonsensical than almost anything else in Tooth & Nail Records' catalog. It proves an arduous task to identify any faith-based themes on the disc besides a desperate plea to reconcile one's place before God. Although there is less pounding rock than on its debut album, the group continues to explore sounds that make you want to shudder and tap along simultaneously. The one theme appears to be an obsession with mischievous critters — spiders, porcupines, and wolves, to name a few. You'll either "get it" or you won't, but you definitely won't forget the eccentric sound of this oft-loved band.

Lol

This song is so funny

Catch for Us the Foxes, Pt. 2

That’s basically what it sounds like. It’s still good, but it’s not quite as good as their previous album.

Elegant and Profound

Aaron Weiss is very likely the most lyrically gifted songwriter of our generation. Brother, Sister is an incredibly well-sculpted whole, with line after line of tear-inducing honesty and poetry. There can never be a doubt in the listener's mind that Weiss does this for the sake of the music and the art form; no other reason is left.
The carefree, passionate delivery of every word packs more soul into a single phrase than many artists will ever achieve in their career.
Music has never quite moved me in the way this album has, and I'm always bleary-eyed by the time I finish yet another play through.
