Shearwater continue to explore the beauty, menace, and fragility of the natural world – and that increasingly rare species, the indivisible album – on The Golden Archipelago, the new album on Matador that releases on February 23, 2010. The new record is the third panel of a triptych that includes 2006’s enigmatic Palo Santo and 2008’s acclaimed Rook, albums linked by themes of environmental and personal decay and humans’ impact on nature. The Golden Archipelago is an album of lofty goals and great risk, but Shearwater have never been afraid to dream in widescreen.
