Selections from the newest full-length LAKE album Giving & Receiving [KLP228]. Recorded at Dub Narcotic Studio, the album was created last spring and summer while the world was suffering from the Gulf oil spill. The music reflects this disaster without bumming us all out: it soars with beautiful melodies and gentle, yet deliberate instrumentation. The songs were written partially while staying in a cabin in northern Sweden, which band member Ashley says is the only place she's ever truly heard silence. Some of the resultant songs have the creaky barn wood/fresh air sound to prove it.
