Release Notes:

Dead & Born & Grown marks the first time that esteemed producer Glyn Johns
noted for work with The Beatles and the Stones, amongst others and his son
Ethan (Laura Marling, Ryan Adams, etc) have worked on the same project: an
alliance all the more remarkable for both men being individually attracted to
The Staves

It's not hard to tell why. The acappella harmonies of the three Staveley-Taylor
sisters on the opening "Wisely & Slow" have such sweet clarity, blending country
charm with the playful insouciance of The Andrews Sisters, that resistance seems

Wisely, the Johns afford the voices plenty of space, with just an organ drone
fading quietly in after a minute, as the sisters muse upon the fate of a
bereaved woman, asking, "Why is it you whisper when you really need to yell?"
It's as perfect and precious as a Faberg trinket, and it establishes a style
and a quality, that's repeated throughout the album. Not to mention a theme: on
"Gone Tomorrow", the sweet sorrow of parting is crystallised in harmony over
fingerstyle guitar, placid drums and organ; in "Tongue Behind My Teeth", a
fonder farewell is mapped out in a cantering jangle of guitars and layered
counterpoint harmonies; and with "Snow", the warm jangle serves as a quilt
against the blanketing snow of separation

Hailing from Watford, The Staves are like a distillation of all that's best
about the folk heritages of England and America. On "Winter Trees", their voices
have that cold, sharp precision born of the Anglo folk tradition; while "In The
Long Run" presents a more American flavour, with the simple purity of the guitar
recalling Simon & Garfunkel, and their harmonies embodying the innocence of West
Coast hippie idealism

The two traditions come together perhaps most strikingly on the languid, drowsy
"Pay Us No Mind", where antique diction "tarry" and "thee", etc is suddenly
exploded by the expletive in the line, "I don't give a fuck." But the real
surprise is that it doesn't fracture the song at all, so adeptly do the girls
negotiate the change. Magical stuff
