"Shearwater are capable of emotional resonance through the most brittle of arrangements. Stunning." [Uncut, 4-star review]
No longer to be known as Okkervil River's "other band", Shearwater has transformed itself to the point of reinvention on 'Palo Santo', the band's fourth album, on Fargo Records.
The first Shearwater release to be made up entirely of songs by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Meiburg, 'Palo Santo' resembles previous Shearwater albums only incidentally, and Okkervil River less still.
'Palo Santo' is a thrilling, paradoxical record; icily warm, welcoming and threatening, sloppy and immaculate.
"Palo Santo is one of the year's best indie-rock albums." [New York Times]
