Crazy Canucks and their incestuous indie rock! Spencer Krug and Dan Bejar — no strangers to collaboration — team up with Frog Eyes’ Carey Mercer for the latest and greatest in Canadian supergroups.
Swan Lake – “All Fires” (MP3)
With Krug’s characteristic croon, the spacey guitar trills, and those distant drums, we’re not hearing much to distinguish this from Sunset Rubdown sessions. (That ain’t a bad thing.) What would really make this record great is Krug, Mercer and Dan the Destroyer delivering an affected-acapella rendition of just about anything. ‘Cause they sing funny!
Beast Moans is out 11/21.
