Great Lakes Swimmers

Lost Channels


Toronto folk quintet Great Lake Swimmers return with quicker tempos and stronger rhythms in "Lost Channels," available March 31, 2009, from Nettwerk Records. Their fourth full-length release, "Lost Channels" is definately a Great Lakes Swimmers album, bearing all of the understated and folky hallmarks of their previous releases. The band offers a comparatively energetic and enthusiastic presentation with this release while somehow maintaining the relaxed and almost sleepy attitude of previous works. Fans of their earlier work are likely to find what they're listening for here, while low-fi purists may find themselves feeling betrayed by the extra attention the band seems to have payed to the album's post-production. – Mike Shade
