Port O'brien


I feel like Gina should be writing this post because she looooves Port O'brien and introduced me to them, but I beat her to it! Coming from California, this foursome started playing indie folk pop in 2005. Their sophomore album, All We Could Do Was Sing, was released last month, and is centered around a nautical theme. All four members of the band spent their summers working along the sea, and "when you're working all day in the freezing cold, what the hell else are you going to do?"

M. Ward quoted them as his Favorite New Band on Pitchfork, and if that's not enough street cred, they've toured with Bright Eyes and Modest Mouse. Learn more about Port O'brien by checking out the "interview" on their myspace page.
