LAKE – “Roger Miller”

Nature-loving Olympia pop crew LAKE are following 2009’s Let’s Build A Roof with Giving & Receiving. If you recall, co-songwriter Eli Moore does electrical work with his father and sister, something that made that album’s construction metaphor feel more tangible. Something else you can grab onto: He and the other LAKE songwriter Ashley Eriksson just got married on Whidbey Island, the place she was helping save when we last crossed paths. All this to say, even a NME drug list-ready song with a concept as Poi Dog Pondering loopy as “Roger Miller” somehow feels rooted in the everyday.

LAKE – “Roger Miller”

Giving & Receiving is out 4/12 via K. You’ll find streams of a Shawn Parke “Roger Miller” remix plus albums tracks “Within/Without” and “One Small Step” at the K Records Tumblr.
