Shearwater – ‘Rook’ Coming In 2008

December 18th, 2007 at 10:37 am by Jonathan

It’s all over but the shouting for Shearwater‘s new album, ‘Rook’. We recorded it in November at the Echo Lab in Argyle, Texas, among barred owls, pet donkeys, coyotes, and the ominous sounds of gas wells being drilled in the near distance; rural north Texas retreats as Dallas approaches. After a break for the holidays, we’ll be mixing and mastering in early 08, with plenty of touring on the horizon. (For photos, click the Thor-carved dendroglyph above.)

    I bought the album at a show here in Fargo and it’s amazing. Sleeper favorite track: “Home Life”. It’s just gorgeous. I’m getting lost in this. And it’s great.

    Well done, Shearwater.
