port o'brien to release threadbare + tour

    Alaskan/Californian band Port O'Brien sing with a gusto and bold honesty that glimmers in times populated by neofolk/freak folk pretention enthusiasts. It is an unfeigned appeal, a raw punch of energy and emotion in acoustic powered anthems with measured splash or unreserved energy, stories told in minutes, in highlighted bursts, songs that are bound to be shots to the head. It seems fitting that the recordings for their new album, threadbare (to be released October 6th), happened in two settings that reflect their songs: the intimate living room recording studio of a member of Papercuts, and then for the fuller, more involved songs, at an open studio in LA. The effect of the west coast is hardly noticeable here, though. This is authentic and gritty and beautiful in the way that only certain folk-pop songs could be. Catch the band on their tour, across Europe in August and across the US in the fall with Sea Wolf. Dates are listed below. - Laura Yan
