The 11 songs find the band, featuring brothers Brad (guitar) and Andrew Barr (drums), and Sarah Pagé (harp), further on their thrilling path of exploring the outer limits of folk, blues, rock and Americana made north of the American border.

The album's opener, for example, has all the majesty of Paul Simon's Graceland. It's simultaneously exultant and gentle--a surprising combination of a lullaby and a tribal anthem. "Song That I Heard," the standout track, feels much like Our Endless Numbered Days-era Iron and Wine, a stunning piece of folk songwriting with brilliant lyricism, gorgeous finger-picking, and Sam Beam's warm baritone swapped with Brad Barr's lovely falsetto (mingling with gorgeous harmonies). The album's title track has the swelling indie energy of The War On Drugs minus the arena-rock grandiosity. Though every song sounds unmistakably like The Barr Brothers, their ability to shift between influences so effortlessly helps unite listeners' potentially divergent tastes into a single cohesive product.
Queens of the Breakers is among the best representations of modern folk, showcasing all the tools the genre in its current state employs to wow its loyal listeners. If you're a fan of anyone from The Weepies to Bon Iver to The Milk Carton Kids to Wilco, you're going to love this release.
