Port O'Brien could be this years left field classic. The Oakland duo of Van Pierszalowski and Cambria Goodwin provide a collection of folk tinged pop songs augmented by banjo, cello and violin like Death Cab For Cutie covering The Waterboys. All We Could Do Was Sing follows on from 2007's collection of self-recorded early songs "The Wind and the Swell," which garnered enough praise to raise their profile sufficiently.
The slightly gruff multi- harmonic overload of opening track " I Woke Up Today" is a bit of a misnomer as it hints at a kind of rustic Arcade Fire but this band are actually far more stripped back and confessional than that. There is an intimacy and empathy to this music that hauls them back from the more ostentatious levels of that type of music. Not that there is anything wrong with that mind but this music feels far more personnel and therefore a little more special or is that me being a little precious. Either way this is an album that should be heard.
The sea plays a large briny role in many of these songs ( Van Pierszalowski's spent three month's on his father's fishing trawler in Alaska so it's not too surprising) So songs like "Stuck On A Boat" or "Fisherman's Son" ( another Waterboy,s connection there) are lovely acoustic led laments with strings groaning like shifting timbers. By ways of contrast there is the tangled thickets of electric guitar on "Pigeonholed" -the one song on here that actually outstays it's welcome- or the in your face trembling chords of "Will You Be There?"." The Roof Top Song" recalls past greats like Thin White Rope or Buffalo Tom in their more introspective moments .

Was introduced to this singer via Uncut magazine with free CD. I am sooooo glad I purchased this album from the one track I had heard on an introductory compilation CD - and can well recommend it - in my opinion there's only one track I'm not too fussy on otherwise it has now become one of our favourite players!!

I came to this album with high hopes.'Indie Folk' sounded just the sort of musical concoction to whet my appetite.Unfortantely....not to put too finer point on it...is was all a bit rubbish ! Extremely dreary songs performed with an almost sixth form college band level of musicianship and produced by someone recruited from a deaf school.The institution not the Scouse band !
Two stars is a bit generous but it's a beautiful morning and I'm in a good mood.
