Port O’Brien on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic

Though I foolishly overlooked Port O’Brien’s 2007 album All We Could Do Was Sing (I’m making up for that now), I’m happy to have spent plenty of time with this year’s excellent Threadbare.

The Oakland-based band closed a tour run with Sea Wolf on Friday at a sold-out Modified in Phoenix, and Port O’Brien brought a lively energy that I’m guessing won over some of those people who were there just to hear that one song by that other band that’s on that Twilight soundtrack. (Electric Mustache has some photos of the show.)

On its way back through California, Port O’Brien played a session for KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, in which bass strings are broken and singer Van Pierszalowski discusses life as a commercial fisherman.
