It’s been over a year since Oldermost released It’s Difficult To Know Anything At All, so when singles start trickling out of the dreamy Americana outfit’s camp it’s a treat. The latest is “Finally Unsure,” a blazing song that follows early August tune “Honey With Tea” with a satisfying, Wilco-esque delivery against a cinematic backdrop.
In somewhat of a perfectly timed hump day pick-me-up, Philly indie/americana rockers Oldermost have shared a new single, “Honey With Tea.” It’s a soothing, spacey jam with rich guitar riffs, deep drum fills, and zoned-out synths. In it, vocalist Bradford Bucknum echoes the line “give me what I need, give me what I don’t need” as the song fades to a close. And while we might not have necessarily needed this tune, nobody’s complaining. This is Oldermost’s first release since the It’s Difficult to Know Anything At All EP they put out last year.

I wasn’t sure I’d make it to the show on Tuesday night. My whole house was shaking from the thunder, and the lighting left little to the imagination as to the state of affairs beyond the confines of my four walls. But luckily, the violent stormfront passed quickly, and I was able to leave for the show right on time. Little did I know that Oldermost and Sam Amidon would bring their own, different kind of storm to World Cafe Live, that night. Continue reading →
Philly five-piece Oldermost are set to release their upcoming album, It’s Difficult to Know Anything At All, next week on March 24, and we just got another taste of the variety this upcoming EP seems to hold. The Americana/rock-infused group released a video for the track “A Drink (Or Two)” back in February, in which frontman Bradford Bucknum gallivants through the streets of Philly with a TV in a stroller.
Their latest release, “Electric Light Eyes,” is a laid-back track infused with inquisitive lyricism that the band promised to bring with this new EP. They admitted on their blog that this track holds one of Bucknum’s favorite lines (one they say “could serve as a subtitle to the album,”) in which Bucknum croons, “Just to know how much there still is to know.” Continue reading →
We see Oldermost frontman Bradford Bucknum watching television with a disgruntled demeanor in the Philly band’s new video for “A Drink (Or Two).” But instead of flipping the old school set off, Bucknum takes his static TV for a walk in a stroller around his Philadelphia neighborhood only to be laughed at by his band mates. Later, he falls asleep in the woods next to his television, which is screening a fire to give him warmth. Continue reading →
