Good Old War

Superior US folk-rock that showcases some nice acoustic work (check out the intricate picking of 'Making My Life') and tight harmonies, for anyone who perhaps finds the whole Fleet Foxes thing a tad adventurous. There are hints of McCartney on some of the melodies, while the sitar-like sounds and exotic percussion of 'Old' suggests his colleague Mr Harrison. This is the Pennsylvanian trio's second album and they've honed their material into a honey-sweet, pillow-soft concoction that will happily soundtrack sunsets, civilised beach parties and even the occasional backyard barbeque. The 15 tune tracklist may sound a lot, or even too many, but with only two touching the three minute mark, nothing hangs around long enough to really offend.
