RIYL: Loma, Midlake, Wye Oak, Phosphorescent

Label: Self-released

It has been a long time coming for Jonathan Meiburg, but we are finally graced with another Shearwater album. Since this is a fan driven album, it would only seem fit for Shearwater to make more of the melodic music he has always written but listening to the first track not only confirms that but shows that there will be some experimentation involved. The first track, ‘Xenarthran’ comes with a diving percussion and base line, strings and both electric and acoustic guitar. The song feels like I’m perusing through a lush forest without a care in the world yet knowing that the end of my journey is upon me (I wrote this before watching the official video. Damn I’m good!).

As I write this, two more LP’s have sold, so I’m going to shut up and post!

Also available are the CDs limited to 500 and signed as well.
