Listen to this track by Canadian folk pop throwback collective Great Lake Swimmers. It’s “Easy Come, Easy Go”, the title track to their upcoming 2012 record New Wild Everywhere to be released this coming April.
The band Great Lake Swimmers is the vehicle for the songwriting of Tony Dekker, working with a number of different line-ups over five albums, including this upcoming one. In this, the model for the band is not unlike a City and Colour, or Sun Kil Moon. Great Lake Swimmers makes melodic folk-rock centered on a sort of pastorial vibe while the band works out of Toronto, a major urban center.
