About the Album

Better for the Deal is the second The Brains Behind Pa release. It contains all original material that incorporates new ideas with the essence of the older music the band loves. While this album is certainly more contemporary than Old Hat, it would be inaccurate to describe it as “modern.” The songs were written not only to explore those styles and subjects that interest the band, but also to highlight the strengths of the band. A vast majority of it was recorded live over a two-year period beginning in the spring 2004 at The Lodge studios in Indianapolis.
