Here’s a chance to win a pair of tickets to see Austin rockers Shearwater with Great Lake Swimmers and Dusted who play The Button Factory next Wednesday, November 28th.
Great Lake Swimmers return to Dublin with New Wild Everywhere their fifth studio album and follow up to 2009’s Juno and Polaris-nominated album Lost Channels. New Wild Everywhere captures all of the excitement and intuitive musicianship of a group at the peak of their creative powers, with 12 new tracks that reveal a depth and maturity only previously hinted at by lead singer and songwriter Tony Dekker. Produced by longtime Great Lake Swimmers’ collaborator Andy Magoffin, New Wild Everywhere marks the first time in the band’s history that an album was recorded in a real studio (Toronto’s Revolution Recording); past albums have been famously recorded in historic churches, castles, music venues and more.
After six years of constant Holy Fuck touring, Brian Borcherdt emerged from the tangled cables and broken drum machines with a slew of new songs. Looking to explore a different sound, Borcherdt teamed with drummer Leon Taheny and recorded in a converted garage under the name Dusted.
