Good Old War- Pure Volume Sessions

Fuck I slacked last month. Sorry. [Insert excuse here]. Anyways a while back I posted a great ep by a great band, Days Away, and said that since the band broke up I would post some stuff from the guys' new band(s). This is me actually following through. Good Old War are a pop band, an indie/folk pop band, but a pop band nonetheless. Think the Shins with more Simon and Garfunkel-Esq harmonies or Fleet Foxes minus the coma. All this makes one of the catchiest, happiest sounds heard in a long time while still maintaining a sense of creativity unlike most pop artists around today. It's a definite throwback to pop in the '60s and '70s. The Pure Volume Session itself lacks a little because it is only an acoustic guitar and three dudes singing but the practically perfect harmonies between the three of them make up for that fact. Basically if you're not sure if you want to buy the album (you should by the way because it's amazing) this session serves as a sort of introduction. Plus if you buy the album you get the track with Anthony Green's guest vocals.

Track Listing:
1. Coney Island
2. I'm Not For You
3. Tell Me
4. We've Come A Long Way
5. Window
