Friday, May 04, 2012

Since forming a decade ago in Austin as a more contemplative offshoot of the indie-rock band Okkervil River, Shearwater has used harps, glockenspiels, and singer Jonathan Meiburg's delicate falsetto to construct expansive concept albums about man's relationship to nature. Now, with their eighth studio album Animal Joy, the band strips down and amps up the energy for a more rock-oriented sound. Shearwater returns to our studio to play live.
