Gonna Make It Through The YearI was a bit disappointed about ‘Lost Channels’ by Great Lake Swimmers. It’s a fine record. But in my opinion it lacks the great hit single or exceptional song that put distance to every other band that manoeuvres in the genre.
Ever since I heard “I could be nothing” and later “Your rocky spine” I might have been expecting a bit too much?

Today Bad Panda Records released “Gonna Make It Through This Year”. They release a song every Monday, but this is really a scoop. The song by Great Lake Swimmers is more up-tempo and has this wonderful melancholy. Midlakes “Act of Man” has got new competition on my home stereo for sure.
