The Download: New Swan Lake MP3s

The sophomore LP from sugergroup Swan Lake (comprised of Spencer Krug (Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown), Dan Bejar (New Pornographers, Destroyer) and Frog Eyes’ Carey Mercer), hits retailers on March 24, and the trio is looking to make history. From the one-sheet:

It is the band’s contention that this is the first known use of a “court painting” as a record cover used in popular music. As a result of this enthusiasm, the band had planned on calling the album Before the Law, a beloved Kafka parable and a reference to this court painting. However, the band is tired of being tagged as “literary”, so they dubbed the record Enemy Mine, a beloved movie from Bejar’s youth, and a good metaphor for collaboration.

Who doesn’t rely on Dennis Quaid and Louis Gossett Jr. references to dumb themselves down from time to time? Download three tracks from the upcoming LP courtesy of the Jagjaguwar label site.
