Shearwater - The Golden Archipelago (2010)

This is the final album in a trilogy of releases “inspired by man’s impact on the natural world” from the unapologetically melodramatic Austin-based Okkervil River offshoot, following the breakout success of 2008’s Matador Records debut, Rook. The record comes packaged with a full-color, 50-page dossier of records of photos and other ephemera collected by Shearwater principal Jonathan Meiburg. The ornithological theme of the group’s two previous records is replaced here by a focus on islands, with swirling, magisterial compositions like “Castaways.”
