Swan Lake’s second album Enemy Mine is a dense, satisfying listen. If you’ve heard no more than the previously ‘Gum Dropped Carey Mercer-penned opener “Spanish Gold, 2044,” you’ve already heard no less than the album’s best single song. The “supergroup” trio, of course, also includes Dan Bejar and recently Progress Reported Spencer Krug, and each of those guys brought songs to the table. But this time out it’s Mercer who seems to shine most regularly. All that said, each writer bring gems. For instance, see Bejar’s “Spider.”

So you can add to your Enemy Mine collection, here’s the stellar “Spanish Gold, 2044″ again and the Krug-led “A Hand At Dusk.”
