Great Lake Swimmers: New Wild Everywhere

This is a charming and solid album, but for all Dekkar's ability to evoke landscape in his lyrics, their effect is dulled without a recording atmosphere to match them.

Tony Dekkar/Great Lake Swimmers: Song Sung Blue EP

This soundtrack is a beautiful, if brief, offering from Dekkar, and will surely hold fans over until the next Great Lake Swimmers record.

Tony Dekkar has hit his stride with Ongiara, using the right combination of elements from the band’s earlier work to craft not only their best, but one of the best of ‘07.
