The Cactus Blossoms' 'Rich, Vibrant' (NPR) New LP Easy Way Out Now; Eyes Top 10 at Americana Radio

Upcoming Tour Highlights Include Luck Reunion and More at SXSW, Opening for Jenny Lewis at The Ryman + Full Headlining Run

Easy Way, the new album from Minneapolis-based brother duo The Cactus Blossoms released March 1, has jumped 31 spots in less than two weeks at Americana radio, skyrocketing to #11 on the current chart. Now available for streaming and on multiple formats, Easy Way is already earning raves across the board from the New York Times, Rolling Stone + more.

Brothers Page Burkum and Jack Torrey of the band stopped by NPR's Here & Now on release day last week to chat about the new album, playing music with family, and their hometown hero Bob Dylan. Here & Now says their 'voices blend beautifully to create a rich, vibrant sound' on the new LP - listen to the full interview here: https://www.wbur.org/hereandnow/2019/03/01/the-cactus-blossoms-new-album

The Cactus Blossoms head down to Austin for a busy stretch at SXSW next week, where they'll be playing Willie Nelson's Luck Reunion and more. The band kicks off an extensive headlining tour later this month, and just confirmed an opening slot for Jenny Lewis at Nashville's legendary Ryman Auditorium on March 31.

PRAISE FOR EASY WAY

'The Cactus Blossoms maintain their rock-solid, freak of genetics harmonies…..scuffing up their sound in a Roy Orbison-meets-Television style' -Rolling Stone

'The sound is retro, but the words are up to the minute' -New York Times

''[Easy Way] feels like drifting into a dream you never want to wake from.....no one currently creates charming vocal folk-pop as pleasing and striking as the Cactus Blossoms.'- American Songwriter

'Cool, austere swagger reminiscent of Dwight Yoakam's heyday material….If you don't visibly swoon at least two dozen times listening to this album, with its many slow and dreamy and sometimes even grandiose tunes, you need to get out and look up at the stars more' -Minneapolis Star Tribune

'Subtly crafted and deeply felt…has the depth to not only last but improve with subsequent spins.' - AllMusic

Easy Way is the follow-up to their stunning 2016 debut You're Dreaming, which scored them tours with Kacey Musgraves and Lucius, performances on prestigious stages like Newport Folk and Lincoln Center, and even a perfectly cast appearance on the latest season of David Lynch's Twin Peaks.
