Philadelphia's OLDERMOST have been called "Atmosphericana Rockers" whose "sound is gorgeous and expansive, blending traditional songwriting motifs and blue-eyed soul harmonies with an uplifting and emphatically modern guitar rock attack ... with a surplus of texture and ambition, one that doesn't recognize the self-imposed barriers you typically find in the Americana scene," (WXPN's The Key). They "mix pop elements with nodes of soulful Americana and alternative rock laying the foundation for Bucknum's booming voice," (thatmusicmag.org).
In 2015, Oldermost released It's Difficult To Know Anything At All. The five-song collection playfully revisits the heavy inquiries of their full-length debut I Live Here Now, which was produced by Jonathan Low (Sharon Van Etten, Daniel Rossen, Kurt Vile, Mr. Twin Sister), but does so by building tension both centripetally and centrifugally around the dark and whimsical center of questioning and wonder never quite arriving at any answers. The songs, produced in their Philadelphia studio, are filled with questionable advice, despairing wit, contradictions and a ever-present affinity for popular song construction. This release welcomes guitarist Mike Sobel whose lap-steel performance was featured on The War on Drugs' phenomenal release Lost In The Dream ("Eyes to The Wind").
