Editors’ Notes

From the opening acoustic guitars and finely tuned harmonies of "Over and Over," Bucks County, Pa.-based Good Old War reminds listeners that well-executed folk-rock/alt-country can still inspire great songs. The band's third album, 2012's Come Back as Rain, further refines its delicate formula, casting the group as a Crosby, Stills & Nash for a new generation. While the songs are rooted in rustic instrumentation, the melodies caress the contours of vintage pop. "Calling Me Names" hints at The Beach Boys in its looming harmonies, while "Better Weather" evokes the summer breezes of the Boys and Hawaii's Jack Johnson. The band isn't all sun and fun, though. "Present for the End of the World," "Not Quite Happiness," and "It Hurts Every Time" show gray clouds forming, yet with an Americana-pop approach that hasn't been as successfully mined since the days of The BoDeans. The songs are campfire-ready, though it might be a challenge for aspiring singers to nail the harmonies: proof that these young men are old pros.

Customer Reviews

Wow this is really good

I got two of their songs for free on itunes and it just started growing on me. So I looked up other songs and they are so good. It's kind of like an Indie/Pop/Country feel to it, check it out because it's worth it (good for road trips too!)

Amazing, need I say more.

True work of art.


The only thing better than this album is seeing them live!! They are such an amazing band and love them so much!


Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A group formed in the off time (that is to say, hiatus) of the band Days Away, Good Old War -- named with a selection of "parts" of its members' names -- was launched by Days Away's Keith Goodwin and Tim Arnold. Joined by Daniel Schwartz of Unlikely Cowboy, Good Old War began recording its debut album in Los Angeles in 2008, with hopes of a release on Sargent House later in the fall. That same year, Good Old War acted as the backing band (both live and in the studio) for Anthony Greene's album Avalon,...
