Great Lake Swimmers Album on Sale

Last year I stumbled upon Great Lake Swimmers, and ended up loving their 2007 record, Ongiara.

For the next 24 hours, you can pick up their new album, Lost Channels, for just $3. This record doesn't tamper much with the classic GLS formula, merely adding some talented backing vocalists and a little more energy to the banjos, hushed singing, and sense of open, sweeping, outdoor spaces.

If you like Iron and Wine, Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, or Sufjan Stevens, you'll find something to like on this album. Especially for $3.

Thanks for recommending this band. Just listened to their free release, Live from the Church of the Redeemer. Very nice.

Been reading your blog for awhile. Blessings! (And, yes, Go Jayhawks!)
