Great Lake Swimmers have hugely affected the music world with their ambient-independent-folk sound. Paper Bag Vintage are pleased to reissue the Canadian indie darlings' debut self-titled album on colored vinyl. Originally released in 2003, the haunting collection was recorded over several months in an abandoned grain silo in Southern Ontario and exhibits their familiar thematic threads of beauty in the natural world, environmental issues and explorations of close personal ties that hold us together. Band mastermind Tony Dekker reflected on the recording process: "Late-summer 2001, recording. A year spent in a Toronto movie office, also playing drums, bass, writing, remembering Wainfleet, an intact abandoned grain silo towering above a collapsed house, collapsed barn, storm and fire long having left them... Nature reclaiming what had been left to rot. Beautiful decay. If you don't want it, I'll take it."
