Sub Pop is proud to present Shearwater's Animal Joy, our first album by the band and their eighth overall. Led by Jonathan Meiburg, and featuring drummer Thor Harris, and bassist Kimberly Burke, Shearwater has been a favorite at Sub Pop HQ for years. On Animal Joy, Meiburg ditches the expansive approach of his recent records particularly the epic trilogy of Palo Santo, Rook and The Golden Archipelago to create a record that seems shockingly direct, immediate and intensely personal. He's no stranger to lush, crafted recordings, but this one sounds like no prior Shearwater incarnation.
Beautifully produced, smart, engaging lyrics and an engaging voice.

Heard Robert Plant in an interview speak of Shearwater and the Black Keys in the same sentence as bands to hear. He was right.Published on December 11, 2012 by Randy Coffey
Reading some of these reviews is pretty entertaining. You would thing the reviewers are expressing their opinions about the latest novel they have read. Read morePublished on November 16, 2012 by Ronald H. Parry
