Making a Splash
Canada’s Great Lake Swimmers specialize in alt-country tracks that hearken the sounds of Americana acts like the Pernice Brothers, Scud Mountain Boys (which features Joe Pernice) and Iron & Wine. The group released its fourth album, Lost Channels, back in March. Frontman Tony Dekker and gang are currently on tour in Europe, with a few shows in Canada and one stop in New York.
