Album Review

Indie rock trio Good Old War traded emo-pop for folksy jangle pop on their 2008 debut, and if the Pennsylvania outfit’s eponymous sophomore outing is any indication, they’re a lot happier in the paisley underground than they were brooding about with Days of the New. The album opens with an effervescent mini-instrumental that comes off like Grizzly Bear trying less to impress, a compliment that applies to the majority of the 14 tracks that follow. Good Old War is at its best when applying '60s-infused pop melodies to a 21st century indie rock template, and on standout tracks like “Here Are the Problems” and “That’s Some Dream,” the band manages to sound like the Flaming Lips fronted by Paul Simon. When the group decides to let a little darkness back in, like on the bluesy “Get Some” and the Nick Drake-esque “I Should Go,” the melancholy feels communal rather than self-absorbed, and the music stays accessible without ever becoming cloying, which is a hard feat to pull off, especially when your record includes a track called “Woody's Hood Boogie Woogie.”

its not a fight, its a good old war....

AMAZING!!! Good Old War really stepped it up on their new songs! Cant wait for a new album.

four great songs by two great artists

Just got this split from good old war and cast spells.. had to say i really enjoyed all four songs and can't wait to hear the new cd from good old war early next year!

What an awesome Split!

These two groups compliment each other amazingly on this split! I've been waiting for a while for new Good Old War music, and am so glad to have discovered Cast Spells from this. I cant remember the last time i saw a split EP, but this definitely makes me wish that groups did this more
