MP3 At 3PM: Great Lakes

Originally a part of the MAGNET-championed Elephant 6 Collective, the Brooklyn-based Great Lakes has just released its sixth album. Dreaming Too Close To The Edge (Loose Trucks) veers all over the stylistic map, though a constant remains frontman Ben Crum’s lyrical prowess and subtle way with melody. Now 22 years into its career, Great Lakes has seen many lineup changes, but with Dreaming Too Close To The Edge, it seems a steady core group of players has coalesced behind Crum. Musically, it shows, and not surprisingly, the new album is one of the band’s best. Stream and/or download Dreaming Too Close To The Edge opener “End Of An Error” below.
