Your Daily Lick: Port O'Brien

All We Could Do Was Sing (self-released)



The first thing you should know about "Stuck on a Boat" and "Fisherman's Son": they are true stories. Lead singer Van Pierszalowski really is a fisherman's son - in fact a part-time Alaskan fisherman himself - hence the seafaring imagery that pervades Port O'Brien's studio debut. Musically, the folk-meets-Pavement approach works flawlessly.
