Great Lakes Myth Society

Compass Rose Bouquet

2007-05-08

LOCAL Great Lakes Myth Society-Compass Rose Bouquet (Quack!) This is the second album from the whimsical Michigan folk-rockers. This album ranges from Americana to indie rock, while exploring all the spaces in between. GLMS has an educated sound that is extremely engaging and their sophomore release's highs and lows blend into a mature, unrushed sound. The entire sound this young group creates evolves around the vocal lines and simple lyrical arrangements. Not that it takes anything away from the pleasant sound revolving around these two elements. Some songs to stick close to are track 2 “Summer Bonfire,” track 5 “March,” track 4 “Queen of the Barley Fool,” and the final track 12 “The Gales of 1838.” -Jake Burritt
