Port O’Brien @ The Borderline, Aug 18th.


What? Port O’Brien

Californian’s Port O’Brien first caught my ear in 2007 with the simple, catchy collection of sea shanties and drunken folk stompers that was ‘The Wind and The Swell’ mini album. They followed that up with the better produced (although perhaps a little less charm?) and fuller band affair of 2008’s ‘All We Could Do Was Sing’ which amongst new tracks included a re-recording of their most memorable song and live favourite ‘I Woke Up Today. A lot of fun in the flesh with improvised percussion, big guitar licks and Arcade Fire Style communal singing. Maybe a little sloppy at times but that’s all part of the package.

For Fans Of: Arcade Fire, Bright Eyes, Bodies Of Water.
