Great Lakes Swimmers...

Great Lake Swimmers current eponymously title album has been in pretty heavy rotation here at Bars & Guitars for the last couple of months, so I have to say that I was pretty stoked when Misra Records sent me an advance copy of their forthcoming record Bodies And Minds I was pretty stoked. The record can be ordered from the Misra site now, but it won't be released until October here in the US.

Great Lake Swimmers have really expanded the sonic pallette with this record. Where as Great Lake Swimmers is a moody somber record that's just a touch more than voice and acoustic guitar, Bodies And Minds fills out the sound pushing the song into more recent Sam Beam territory. It still has a very down home vibe (though minus the recorded in a grain silo schtick) that's anchored by Tony Dekker's warbling voice. It's an assured follow up that'll turn some heads far beyond the Iron & Wine, Devendra, Sufjan Stevens crowd.

When It Flows
