Do you like music that makes you feel like you are standing on the edge of a cliff by the ocean with seabirds flying all around you and the wind just barely resisting the urge to push you right over? Then this is the band for you.
Shearwater's new album Animal Joy has these incredible sweeping moments and crescendos that make my heart flutter. I love Jonathan Meiburg's sort of dark gothy vocals.
SubPop has kindly provided their whole album for streaming here:
I can't wait to see these guys with Sharon Van Etten tomorrow!
Music music music!
