Editors’ Notes

New Wild Everywhere takes the wispy atmospherics of Great Lake Swimmers' earlier works and turns them into a sort of alt-country. It seems like the band's marching from Canada over the plains and into the Southwest deserts, over to Bakersfield. With their previous album, 2009's Lost Channels, Toronto-based Tony Dekker and crew stumbled onto the beauty of Gene Clark, the wayward Byrds member who best understood heartbreak. The group made his sorrow their sorrow. New Wild Everywhere continues that streak. "The Great Exhale" pulses with the feel of Clark's last studio album, So Rebellious a Lover. High praise, indeed. But Dekker has been steadily evolving into a confident singer capable of bringing his smooth delivery into rockier terrain. With its vast country-rock sweep, "Changes with the Wind" throws the band into Chris Hillman's Flying Burrito Brothers territory. The ability to power up beyond the slow acoustics of many lonesome troubadours has benefitted Dekker, who's found a way to balance joy and disappointment into pure expression. The deluxe edition adds acoustic versions of many album tracks, along with other bonus cuts.

Customer Reviews

Their best!

I loved Lost Channels, not simply because of its connection to the Thousand Islands, though that certainly didn't hurt. Because of that connection, I wanted it to remain my favorite, but it has been trumped by New Wild Everywhere! Simply an outstanding album with no bad tracks. I particularly LOVE The Knife, The Great Exhale and Ballad of a Fisherman's Wife. This last track will reconnect with the River and islands when their latest music video, produced by Toronto's McLellan Group, comes out this fall.

I love them, but not this album

That's not to say I don't like the album or the songs. Just that the arrangements have changes and something feels a bit monotonous about the whole album. The violinist is amazing, however i think they used it a bit much on this album.. its always following the lyrics on most songs.. and it just gets a bit tiring. Some of the soul and timing of the previous albums was way better I guess it also feels a bit clinical.

But thats just my opinion.. They're a great canadian band and you should support them, you won't be disappointed.

Great

love it
