[audio:] Port O’Brien – “My Will Is Good” (from threadbare)

Port O’Brien recently announced the deal regarding their upcoming third album, threadbare, out October 6th on TBD Records. The group began working on the follow-up to last year’s excellent All We Could Do Was Sing earlier this year, and recorded it in sessions with Jason Quever of Papercuts in SF and Aaron Espinoza of Earlimart in LA.
