Even though we’d previously covered a couple of songs from ex-Port O’Brien frontman Van Pierszalowski’s new project WATERS, I didn’t actually give his September 2011 debut full-length Out in the Light a listen until I found album closer “Mickey Mantle” a few weeks ago. I love the album’s earnest indie rock, and if I could re-do my list of the Top 30 Albums of 2011, I would add Out in the Light before any other.
Now WATERS has released a new B-side from the sessions for Out in the Light. It’s called “If Only,” and it roars along with surf rock-tinted energy that recalls Wavves or Fang Island. It’s a great listen, and I highly recommend visiting the iTunes page for Out in the Light if you like it.
