Shearwater from Austin, Texas, was founded by former members of Okkervil River.

Jonathan Meiburg is the trio’s leader and his pure unmistakable voice is penetratingly irresistible.

We first spotlighted Shearwater here in 2010 upon the release of The Golden Archipelago.

Their 7th album, Animal Joy, is due on Valentine’s Day. “You As You Were” is a preview.
