Great Lake Swimmers album details revealed

Details of the new Great Lake Swimmers record were revealed in a press release today. The 12-song disc is slated for release on Nettwerk Records March 31. It will be the fourth full-length from the Tony Dekker-fronted Canadian band.

From a press release:

“Musically, the new Grreat Lake Swimmers songs see influences ranging from early REM, Gram-Parsons-era Byrds, and the Faces, to the acoustic side of Neil Young. It has elements of deceptively simple roots-rock, while still maintaining the haunting indie-folk and spatial qualities that GLS has become known for. 12-string Rickenbacher guitars, banjo, pedal steel, tight harmonies, and stripped down arrangements are all in the mix on Lost Channels.”

1. Palmistry 2:32
2. Everything Is Moving So Fast 4:19
