Old Man Gloom - No download album
This is Old Man Gloom's fifth album, their first in eight years. They weren't on hiatus, just busy writing the greatest album in music history. That makes them the proud progenitors of the five greatest albums of all time, "NO" being number one. "NO" is like "one", only spelled backwards and without the "E". - Old Man Gloom are playing shows in 2012 and 2013, just in time for the collapse of the global economy. The acronym for Old Man Gloom is "OMG"

A very old man gloom writing session has come to an end. Much laughing, many meals, and a lots of hours of me criticizing Aaron’s avant-garde record collection. We also took many long rainy walks, we danced in our socks, and we learned the name of some trees in Aaron’s yard. Oh, and we wrote a whole god damn Old Man Gloom record that we all agree is going to be fucking awesome. Depending on your perspective.
Old Man Gloom's NO is a weird record. It's also a graceful, surprisingly catchy one. It's a complex, knotty collection that speaks to the members' hard-won confidence in each other and what they do together. Though, on average, younger than the guys in Harvey Milk, Old Man Gloom are also made up of dudes starting to find gray in their beards. Unlike Harvey Milk, they could still use some Ritalin. You might be tempted to call OMG a "super group," but that's a ridiculous term in 2012, especially in the context of underground music.
