Album Review: Great Lake Swimmers:: Ongiara::: Nettwerk
  • MONDAY, JULY 23, 2007

  • Posted by:

From the very first banjo strokes, Ongiara invites comparisons to some of the big names of indie folk: Neil Young, Iron & Wine, Nick Drake, and Sufjan Stevens. While this could be considered a somewhat stifling group to work in (who’s going to want to try to compete with Neil Young??), the Great Lake Swimmers perform admirably, and manage to present a sound that is distinctly their own. The third album from the Ontario-based band is in no way a departure from their previous two albums, but rather works on developing their sound, to varying degrees of success.
