Given the beautifully crafted, deeply affecting music on How Was Tomorrow, it's hard to believe that Toronto's Cash Brothers (Peter and Andrew) had spent virtually no time playing together prior to this debut CD. But this release--surely one of the most compelling debuts in recent memory--wonderfully weaves together their smoky, low-end voices and dense guitars with their individual experiences, both musical and workaday, making a definitive statement that is both haunting and hopeful. The result sounds like the ultimate blend of country and pop--a narcotic combination of the Everly Brothers and Pure Prairie League--but what starts out in the hallways and front porches of country and dark folk slowly unfolds into a multichambered structure of melancholy, clear-eyed pop. This is not bright, shiny pop and twangy country but deep, frequently mournful pop; pop that shimmers, reflects, and sometimes hurts. Masters of the direct, simple statement, the Cash Brothers effortlessly peel off lines like "I am waiting / Like a farmer for rain / Like a healer for pain" ("I Am Waiting"). It's still hard to peg just exactly what makes them stand out from their peers-- their voices blend perfectly and the instrumentation is fairly standard--but the important thing is that it's there: that intangible, indescribable quality that keeps you coming back for more, knowing that this is the real thing. --Carl Hanni

I must say that this cd took me by surprise. Friends of mine who are into Wilco and Whiskeytown told me that "How Was Tomorrow" was divine, but I did not believe it until my first listen. The cd is strong and compelling. It is ripe with rich country tinged rock. The brothers' lyrics examine the trials and tribulations of the daily life, the struggles we all face. The album itself is loud and rawkus at some points, delicate and understated at others. If you are into alt. country and bands like Son Volt, Wilco, Flatlanders, and Whiskeytown you will love this album.

Format: Audio CD
The Cash Brothers have some magic happening. Their sound is appealing to those of us who love the alt country thing, but on the folk side most of the time. This CD is essentially a rerelease of 1999's Raceway CD from Canada, four tracks from '99 were deleted and 3 new tracks added. The guitar strum drones and the voices seem downcast as "Raceway" begins the CD. Then the guitars begin to jangle, the volume increases, and the vocals become assured as the piece builds, "I can't wait to wrap my arms around you." The midtempo "Take A Little Time" is highly addictive pop, a great stop & smell the roses song. "Nebraska" is a thundering wash of electric guitar, "Half my heart was ripped out, but I still got some." On "The Only One" the guitars drone and the vocals trudge as we get a sense of wading uphill through emotional isolation. Guitars blast and the vocals are submerged on "Nerve," "You've got a lot of nerve coming around here." "Show Me the Reason" has airy vocals to a pounding rhythm and jangly guitar. Wall of sound pop works well on "Night Shift Guru," "I'm punching in potato chips & sugared water & cigarettes & dream magazines." "Guitar Strings & Favorite Things" is acoustic country folk, "I'm remembering the wind and the way it moves green fields like waves on a holiday." "Awkward Game" is a slow tune with odd vocals and Paul Taylor's gorgeous piano. The brothers sound to me like they're both singing the melody rather than harmony, "If we could go back, would we find the strength we lack or would we be right where we are today?Read more ›

The Cash Brothers play alt country pop, a bright sound of intricate harmonies and guitar-driven arrangements. The lead vocals often sound like one of the Bodeans singers, a plus to my mind. From start to finish, the CD is never less than highly listenable, and a few songs go well beyond that standard, achieving something like a bleak greatness. Try, for example, Raceway, the loneliness of a track when the race is over and the teams break down for the next stop on the circuit, all the while wanting instead to be back home. Nebraska is about driving, the Springsteen album, and the end of romance. My current favorite is Nerve -- a Springsteen-like tribute to a girl done wrong. Guitar Strings and Foolish Things, and I Am Waiting round out my choices for top cuts on the CD. I'll look forward to what the Cashes come up with next and hope it is moving beyond their influences to honing their own distinctive sound. If so, there's five star potential here.

I first learned of the Cash Brothers when they opened up for the Jayhawks at the Belcourt Theater in Nashville. It was one of those times where you thought about blowing off the opening band, but end up very, very glad that you did not.
There are some discs that you discover, quite by accident, that no one else has heard of, and that blow you away. I call these the [price] bottles of wine -- gems that make you smile, and give you a silent satisfaction of having found it.
The Amazon editorial review is pretty much dead on. Lyrically poignant, distinctly dark pop with shimmering melodies and beautiful high points. I was unable to take it out of the CD player for over a month.
And there are no weak points. How nice to play 13 tracks and have each one claim a spot in your head as the "best" on the disk, depending on your mood or the number of times you've listened to it. From the guitar crescendo on Nebraska, to the sweet whimsey of "Guitar Strings and Foolish Things", this is one that will make you smile just like that $9 bottle, every time you take a sip. Grab it while you can.
Oh, yeah. If you ever get the chance to catch them live, do so.

My cd player just won't stop playing this album. It's that good. Admittedly, I had not heard of the brothers Cash before this album. Now I'm hooked. Each track here is a gem, both voices complementing each other brilliantly. Stand-out tracks (if I absolutely HAD to make a choice) are 'Nebraska', 'Night Shift Guru', 'Guitar Strings and Foolish Things' and 'Awkward Game'. Do yourself a favor and have a listen, you won't regret it. It's that darn good.
