Reflective Musing From Denver Colorado – Here’s PORLOLO With New Single ‘AIN’T NO USE’

Meditations for the laziest day of the week…

2 May 2021

Band: PORLOLO (Denver, Colorado)
Who: The musical project of Erin Roberts,
started in 2002 with guitarist Tom Mohr.

New single: AIN’T NO USE
About: “A story about how hard it is to align our own needs in cadence with
those close to us. About how sometimes we want something so much or for so
long that it becomes our narrative, even if that want doesn’t fit with how we’ve
changed. And about how our desire to win can lead us to some pretty weird

Score: This bittersweet pop symphony has a sepia-colored radiation. It’s
a sensible soul-search translated musically into a heart-rending ballad with
a moody country feel that legends such as Joni Mitchell and Emmylou Harris
mastered wonderfully, but also today’s touching voices Sharon Van Etten and
Angel Olsen come to mind. A mixed emotions composition that endears.

I marked you down as a lightweight
You knocked me out the first round
I still haven’t learned one single thing
About how… To keep you around
