Brazda Brothers, the – “Brazda Brothers, the ” – [Void Records]

Bucolic and pastoral sounds from European duo, as
recorded in RCA studios in Toronto, 1973. Bystrik
(B. Gin) and Andy Brazda rolled this entire LP into
the can in just under six hours (along with five other
musicians) for a 1974 release on the label;
‘Walking in the Sun? b/w ’20th Century? saw a 7″
release that same year, with LP and single gaining
but slight airplay (and a bit of a cult following), mostly
in Canada. With succinct honesty and melodic (often
political) conviction, this collection of decidedly mellow
songs showcase a wonder of nature and a belief in small
(and not always random) kindness; though this was the
pair’s only album, they resurfaced with a 1977 single,
‘Time is Only a Setting Sun?, and were represented in
the NOW SOUNDS OF TODAY series. Ontario soft
rock, touched by fuzz and a meditative optimism.
