Brand New Music from Van William

vanwilliamAs a dude that blogs a lot, I constantly update my iPod (yes, I still use one!). Every time I go through the Ps I come to Port O’Brien; I press play, and remember that I love Van Pierszalowski. So, today, why not share the song from his new Van William project (this song features First Aid Kit). His voice hits home every time, matched perfectly by the female counterpoint; his voice owns a special place in my heart (and iPod!). I love the song’s production, filled with horns that swell in the track’s background. Here’s a listen to “Revolution,” which will get an official release on October 9th.

New Tunes from WATERS

You might know Van Pierszalowski from Port O’ Brien, but he’s beginning to make waves of his own under the name of WATERS. He’s already tossed out one tune earlier this year, and now here comes another stunner from the songwriter, prepping for his debut, Out in the Light, which comes out via TBD Records on September 20th. His voice seems to waiver just the slightest bit, giving a hint of an edge to the gentle track that slowly begins to unfold.  It’s like a more pristine Mile Benjamin Anthony Robinson, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Enjoy this number.

New Tunes from Port O Brien

portAs summer draws to a close, there always seems to be a swell of folk-tinged outfits putting out releases, but none sound nearly as good as this new tune from Port O Brien. This is the first single off their upcoming album Threadbare, which should hit the streets near us on October 6th.
