On his sophomore full-length, Under Control, Cary Brothers doesn't deviate much from the sound he established on his 2007 debut Who You Are. He's kind of like Ray LaMontagne, had the hairy woodsman listened to more Coldplay and a little less Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. In other words, he eschews husky angst for mellow melancholy. You could say Brothers belongs to the "piano rock movement." On tracks such as "Break Off the Bough" and "Over and Out" he even nails the ethereal falsetto cry.
