:: Tremendous work, guys! Had this on repeat for hours now.
Greylage are Andrew Stonestreet [lead vox/acoustic guitar], Daniel Dixon [lead guitar/other stringed things/keys] and Brady Swan [drums] from Portland, Oregon. The rock-influenced band joined the Dead Oceans label family back in July and their self-titled debut LP is out now. The band takes its name from an animal, in a press release the band explaines:
“It’s a wild goose, from which all domestic geese originate, so it’s the first survivor, and it’s still wild, and doing things its own way – the ‘lag’ part refers to it being the last bird to migrate. It sits back and watches. We love the connotation.”
Greylag was officially released worldwide (except UK) on October 14, 2014 via Dead Oceans. UK release follows on November 03. You can buy the digital album from iTunes or order your physical copy of Greylag directly from Dead Oceans.
The album is streaming in its entirety over at Wondering Sound. Take a listen, it’s a stunning record! The set of nine tracks was recorded with producer Phil Ek (Band of Horses, The Shins, Fleet Foxes) at Avast Studio in Seattle and follows Greylag’s 2012 seven-track EP The Only Way To Kill.
