Something to Believe In

Tuesday, June 02, 2009


The most recent EP from Portland's The Old Believers will charm you silly.Eight Golden Greats has that new folk charm one could compare to Fleet Foxes or Grizzly Bear; vocal quality and songs full of wide open reverb. It's kind of like Phil Spector's Wall of Sound, but more of an open field of sound. Not to mention the lyrics are heartfelt if not unbearably and beautifully heart-wrenching!

The slow and simple musical build up of "No More" plays beneath the melancholy: "You don't love me no more, I can see it in your eyes. I know it's my fault," and continues through verse and chorus of lyrics that you'd never want to be true, but are so much better because you can tell they're true for someone!

This EP is definitely genuine and all the better for it. The Old Believers are going to be touring down the west coast with Laura Veirs (check out the post on her just a few scrolls down the page), which makes these shows golden greats in and of themselves.

Check out this track and try not to cry (either because it's so good or the lyrics are so sad!)
