Format: Audio CD
Port O'Brien's All We Could Do Was Sing was one of my favourite albums of 2008 . Consequently I have been waiting eagerly for the follow up. As ever for a band following up a good debut album it's the conundrum of repeating the same formula or taking the music somewhere else. Threadbare finds the band dexterously change their bearing, substituting the fulsome bravado of their debut for dreamy, bereavement-informed reverie. The results are often as fascinating as they are occasionally dull and irregular on an album that takes repeated listens to really grip the listener in it's somnambulant coils.
It's Cambria Goodwin as much as Van Pierszalowski who informs the moods and timbre of this album her introspective and wistful vocals are draped over much of the album , an album informed by the fact that she lost her younger brother during the formative stages of it,s development, a tragic occurrence that impacted profoundly on what followed. Indeed the album is dedicated to him.
Not that this is exclusively a sombre album. "Leap Year " and "Sour Milk /Salt Water " are as rambunctious as anything of last years masterpiece. The real emotional weight of the album is carried by songs like the albums centrepiece "Calm Down " a lovely contemplative song buoyed by violins and cello that fabricates a truly hypnotic ambience. This leisurely almost woozy approach is also utilised on the title track where "Dark will always come " and on "Oslo Campfire " where "everything we have ? Chalk it up to luck ". Perhaps the album is best summed up by the line on the acoustic lullaby "Love Me Through " -Oh my friend...what a summer it's been / But now it's time for healing" .

Probably best remembered for the excellent Fishermans Son from the Long may you
run compiliation,Threadbare is a more sparse acoustic album than their previous
releases.All 12 tracks are well written and well performed with the quieter tone
highlighting their more than competent musicianship. Best track is possibily
Calm me down with its extended instrumental ending.At 43 minutes good value for
money - file alogside Bowerbirds and Fleet Foxes.

HASH(0x8e80fe64) out of 5 stars A Beautiful Record 24 Jan. 2010
By Mark Abrahamsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's not often you find such a beautiful record, a hazy, foggy, fusion of folk and indie rock. Quite possibly an instant classic in my opinion.

HASH(0x8e80fec4) out of 5 stars By far, my favorite of 2010 9 Jun. 2010
By Kelly S. Baker - Published on Amazon.com

I only bought this because it was recommended when I bought another download for $5 last month. This is the best $5 I ever spent on music. This album grows on me more and more with each listen. The music is hard to describe although I agree the lead singer sounds a lot like Tom Petty. Great instrumentation and lyrics. Buy this and you won't be disappointed. Standout tracks include "My Will Is Good", "Sour Milk / Salt Water", "Oslo Campfire", and "Calm Me Down".

HASH(0x8e8126cc) out of 5 stars A Masterpiece of Atmosphere, Songwriting, and subtlety 2 Jun. 2014
By Austin M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of my favorite albums of all time and definitely the peak of Port O'Brien's short discography.

Singers Van and Cambria get equal billing in this final album and their songs merge and interweave brilliantly, telling a mysterious story of distance and loneliness. The jamboree, clap your hands around the bonfire type songs from earlier albums remain, but the darkness is indeed visible just beneath the surface.

Could not recommend more. I'm purchasing the CD again so I can get the liner notes and decipher one line of lyrics that I just can't hear.
