Great Lake Swimmers - Your Rocky Spine

Canadian acoustic group, Great Lakes Swimmers, has been compared to Nick Drake and Iron and Wine blending the same haunting and melodic acoustic sound with intellegent lyrics.

They released their first album in 2003 in Canada, which was then picked up for release in the US in 2005. Since then they have released 3 more albums, each one receiving excellent reviews. It was not until Your Rock Spine, off their third release, Ongiara, was featured on the soundtrack to the show Weeds.

Their fourth album, Lost Channels, expands on their brand of mellow folk-pop but add more orchestrated sound.
