Despite the fact that their most recent music video for their song “Tell Me What You Want From Me” features, of all things, exploding clowns, Philadelphia’s Good Old War have a pleasant relaxed sound. They sound a bit like a tighter, less long-winded, and more pop radio-friendly version of Kurt Vile, which is not at all a bad thing. And, for a minute, album cut “Fly Away” could almost be a long lost Fleetwood Mac cut. As winter gets closer, this type of warm acoustic pop becomes essential to enduring the bitter cold. All good reasons to catch them at the Bowery Ballroom on Dec. 16, where they’ll be touring with The Voice Season 8 winner, Sawyer Fredericks. You can also see them at Union Transfer in Philadelphia on Dec. 18.

    Love that Sawyer is appearing with Good Old War and also Langhorne Slim next month. He has come along way since his win on the Voice less than a year ago. His confidence has grown and his amazing voice has finally settled. He’s an incredible young man with extreme talent and I’m so privileged to be one of his biggest fans. Please keep an eye out for him, cause his career is exploding right now and his fanbase is the greatest and sweetest group of people just like he and his family are. Thanks so much to these amazing artists to include him at some of their shows, also AGreat Big world whose show I saw last month in Los Angeles with Sawyer and it was spectacular.
