Song of the Day - December 4, 2006

Last month saw the release of Beast Moans by indie supergroup Swan Lake. The composition of Swan Lake is a magical mixture of Canadians including Destroyer/New Pornographer Dan Bejar, Frog Eyes' Carey Mercer, and Wolf Parade/Sunset Rubdown's Spencer Krug. This collaboration is no spur of the moment project, rather the various members of Swan Lake have known each other for years and worked on various projects together. Their friendship and artistic kinship resulted in a truly spectacular album. I cannot spend enough time listening to their sublime songs. "Petersburg, Liberty Theater, 1914," "Freedom," and "Widow's Walk" are just some of the songs that deserve repeated listening. My favorite track is "Are You Swimming In Her Pools?," a song that starts off with simple acoustic guitar accompaniment and builds to a burst of exuberance, while evoking a Bowie-like vibe.
