LAKE: Circular Doorway
So, I've just been spending the day with my Californian surrogate brother, rather hungover, eating Chipotle and watching Adventuretime (I know, I know, my life is kind of awesome). If you're familiar with the show then you will probably know the exact episode I am talking about, but we just watched Season 5 Episode 20 called 'Shhh', and in this episode BMO keeps playing this wonderful song that she/he (still never sure what gender Beemo is, if I had to guess I'd say girl?) is going to dance to with the bikini babes. Well, we immediately ran to our computers to look up who the song is by, and discovered the very talented Lake.
The song in question is 'No Wonder I', off their latest album 'Circular Doorway' which you can listen to/purchase on Bandcamp. Their sound is sweet, soothing and psychedelic or as K Records put it "listening to LAKE is like pouring sugar in your ears. They’ll turn your brain into chocolate, 67% cacao." They've toured with some incredibly talented acts such as Adrian Orange and Her Band, Half Handed Cloud, Laura Veirs, and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, and have some shows coming up in the US (see their profile on K Records website for details and tickets).
If you'd like something visual to feed your eyes with, seeing as your ears are probably filled with chocolate by now, have a look at some of their peculiar video clips for songs 'Within/Without', 'Heaven' or 'Sing 99 & 90'.
And if that's not enough for you, they will be releasing another album called The World is Real which will be coming out on K records at the end of (US) summer 2013.
