BROTHER HENRY From: Nashville, Tenn. Since: Well, we're talking three brothers and a pal; first album in 2004 Claim to fame: Making other people's records better Like Virginia Coalition, Brother Henry makes music that doesn't jibe with it's town's reputation: Amid the sounds of Nashville proper, the four-piece casts tight but thick power pop, a shot of soul and mid-'90s indie rock injected right down the spine. Brothers Ned and David have worked on records by people from Slaid Cleaves and David Mead to Yo La Tengo and R.E.M., and their own work professes to that quest for immaculateness and variety. After all, they bring a cello to a guitar fight, and they come out just fine. -Grayson Currin The Independent Chapel Hill, NC.
