Sunday Sessions with Good Old War

By March 28, 2015Music

Good Old War is an indie band from Philadelphia, PA and is made up of Keith Goodwin and Dan Schwartz. The band’s name comes from the last names of the three founding members; Goodwin for “Good,” Arnold (former member Tim) for “Old,” and Schwartz for “War.”

The duo have earned the loyalty of an ever-expanding fan base thanks to their captivating live shows touring along side a diverse group of artists including Alison Krauss, Guster, Brandi Carlisle and Dr. Dog. They will release their 4th studio album and first on Nettwerk Records, Broken Into Better Shape. Produced by Jason Lehning (Mat Kearney, Dolly Parton), and featuring lead single Tell Me What You Want From Me, it follows critically acclaimed Come Back As Rain, which debuted at Nº1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers, and led to national TV performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! & Conan.


Good Old War have chosen some silky smooth sounds for this Sunday:

Keith’s choices:
1-Patricia – Ry Cooder & Manuel Galban
“This sweet Cuban groove and amazing verbed out guitar makes you feel like you are on vacation.”

2-The Velvet Underground & Nico – Sunday Morning
“Doesn’t get much more chill than this.”

3-Beastie Boys – I Don’t Know
“People think of the Beastie Boys and think Brass Monkey, but they also produce these mellow psychedelic jams to fall in love with.”

Dan’s choices:
1- Graham Nash – Simple Man (1971)
“I’ve always been a big Crosby Stills and Nash fan. It wasn’t until later that I discovered their solo work. They even put out a bunch of albums in various combinations of the members. My favourite is Graham Nash’s first solo album, Songs For Beginners. The combination of his heartfelt lyrics, beautifully understated piano, and that unmistakable voice just slays me.”

2-Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass – LadyFingers
“The first time I heard this song, we were driving in Palm Springs and it just made the whole world seem to slow down. I love to put it on whenever I’m in a crowded place. It has this quality that makes me think of warm weather and sets my mind at ease.”

3-Punch Brothers – Julep
“Punch Brothers are my favorite band. Everything they do they do masterfully. Phosphorescent Blues, their newest album is so good that I get chills every time I listen to it. This song is an example of how well they marry lyrics to melody and use their virtuosity to set the vibe without letting it be a distraction.”
