Great Lake Swimmers release new LP tomorrow!

This is very good news that you hopefully have heard by now, but for the unaware, Great Lake Swimmers have a new album out tomorrow entitled Lost Channels. The record is a followup to the band's excellent 2007 release, Ongiara. The new single, "Pulling on a Line" is an extremely infectious alt-folk tune with banjo and mandolin adding a sweet touch to frontman Tony Dekker's world-weary tenor voice. You can check out the video for the song below.

Keep an eye out for Great Lake Swimmers on tour in support of their new album, tour dates below as well.

This album has been in my IPod rotation for three weeks. The album is great. I might try to check them out when they are close.
