Fresh Track: The Beagle Brothers “Hearts Go By” (ftr. Kayla Schureman)

I love when an artist friend shares another artist with me. I pay even more attention when that artist released my favorite record of the year.

The new single (and record) from The Beagle Brothers features our pal Kayla Schureman and that faint cry of the pedal steel and Schureman’s gorgeous honeyed voice are the perfect accoutrement to the band’s countrified sound. Sorrowful at first, then picking up the pace and seamlessly dovetailing to a more uptempo driving rhythm for the second half of the tune. There is surely something in the water down there in Pittsburgh (maybe it’s whiskey?) as some great country tinged acts seem to be coming out of there and The Beagle Brothers just add a bit more fuel to that fire.

Self proclaimed as “The hardest working band in Pittsburgh” and with the new record being “a celebration of change, embracing the inevitability that nothing good lasts forever, and nothing bad is permanent–a reflection on relationships both new and old. The sound of change is fortified by country rock elements: shimmering pedal steel, stirring piano and organ, a steady rhythm section, and soaring vocal harmonies“, this will be one you want to keep spinning on the turntable or just spilling out your ear buds for a good long while.

The band releases the new record TODAY. You can listen to the title track below…but we highly recommend picking this one up on CDBABY or iTunes or check it on Spotify…but seriously, just buy the record instead of streaming it.
