Great Lake Swimmers:: Lost Channels; tonight in Denton, Texas

Toronto’s Great Lake Swimmers released their new album, Lost Channels, last week on Nettwerk. The record features twelve tracks of melodic folk from the mindscapes of songwriter/frontman Tony Dekker done in rich grey tones with overcast backdrop. Played at the right time (contemplation, meditation, reflection, whatever you call it), Lost Channels, is an exquisite piece seen through a big clean spacious recording. These beautiful episodes are done up with rustic banjo tinges adding searing texture, seen most prominently on the finely sculpted piece, “The Chorus In The Underground,” which stands the closest GLS get to mountain music. Lost Channels shows little sign of hiccups, running smoothly to the end with much to go on about. Personal favorites include the acoustic propelled upfront proclamation of “Still,” and the prickly reflection of “Concrete Heart,” holding my favorite line on the record – – “This is the place where I felt like the world’s tallest self-supporting tower… or maybe number two at least for a little while.”
