Today is the first day of recording our 2nd new LP (this year) in Austin; still buzzing from Sub Pop's Silver Jubilee on Saturday. Quite a week. (JM)

I like Shearwater's trajectory. I've got high hopes for this album.

Cool cover.

Someone PM a mod and request the thread title be shortened to Shearwater. I'm unable to. It's long overdue.

That was really awesome. Doubted it initially when the vocals came in because it seemed almost like he was going for direct imitation, and that usually makes for weaksauce. But no, that was cool.

Looks like if you preorder the album from Sub Pop, you get a free 7inch (with a download code) that includes 2 tracks not included on the Fellow Travelers album. (unfortunately, their shipping and handling costs are a bit more than they need to be)

Sub Pop Records : Shearwater : Fellow Travelers

Fellow Travelers is on its way, arriving November 26, 2013. Tomorrow the excellent UK-based music site The Quietus will premiere the second single, our version of the The Baptist Generals' "Fucked Up Life". It's my favorite of their many excellent songs, and it closes the record. I used to see them perform it in Austin years ago, and it moved me every time. This version features musical contributions from Clinic, our favorite Liverpudlian four-piece, whose song "Tomorrow" also appears on the album. (You'll know them when you hear them.)

Since you're receiving this newsletter, you can download it free right now: just use the code 8UZTUR at our download page.

I wish I had an interest in this outside of the xiu xiu cover. I'm sure it's cool, but that's the only song I really care about on it.

I appreciate the fact that the vinyl arrived a week early, but the download code doesn't work until the 25th.
