Port O’ Brien is an indie folk band that resides in Oakland, CA. But this album was actually inspired by a couple of the band members’ own experience working on a salmon fishing boat (which is kind of funny because we just went kayaking today with friends in and around the Naples canals).

Port O’ Brien’s first full length recorded album is indeed impressive and I have heard they can put on a show, although unfortunately I have not had a chance to catch them live… After hearing this album I am on the look out.

All We Could Do Was Sing goes from brilliant exciting knock you out of bed in the morning indie folk rock to showing us their more expressive stripped down acoustic side. Only a couple tracks on the album I could live without… But the good certainly outweighs the bad and the good was pretty great.
