Right when I thought that Michigan was finished being the centerpiece of musical hype after Sufjan had his way with them, the banjo loving Great Lake Swimmers, although Candian based, refuse to let the Wolverine State remain quietly hidden.
Granted they’re latest musical endeavor has been out for about 5 months, they have just announced a tour to visit our good friends down under and are, from what I’ve been told, already making plans to record another album. Talk about wasting no time. They’re music sounds soft and somewhat outspoken, but the sounds they make are more powerful than any hushed vocal or whispered lyric. Think… eerie meets beautiful. I would kill to see them live and encourage any Aussie citizen to catch their tour while they’re on your isle.
Also, The Features have released some new shirts for your consumer like desires. Be sure to be on the lookout next week, as we should be able to get our hands on a few leaked tracks from their upcoming LP that are sure to be nothing but short of amazing.
And I got a pretty decent laugh out of this Photoshopped wonder.
You can only pray for a lineup that good.
