Doing “Good Deeds” with Brothers Young

Brothers Young – “Good Deeds” mp3

How’s this for positivity in a negative age? Brothers Young serve up a soothing little folky pop treat, with shades of XTC’s “Oranges And Lemons” and the immeasurably influential Beach Boys’ “Pet Sounds” album. Such a nice, lazy, summer breezy feel. The dark side of this lyric is hardly dismal. But it is an interesting little food-for-thought number for an undergrad reading Camus in a cafe and rehearsing the “Dad, I don’t want to be a lawyer, I’m in a band, and I got my tongue pierced” speech.
