Great Lake Swimmers - Don't Leave Me Hanging (Acoustic) New album 'A Forest of Arms' available April 21.
The main parts for "Don't Leave Me Hanging” were recorded amid haunting acoustics, stalactites, and circling bats in Tyendinaga Cavern and Caves in Tyendinaga, Ontario where, in Tony Dekker's words, " the environment became another element or sound layer to the recordings, almost like another member of the band."
During the month of February 2009, while the city of Toronto was busy battling against the wind, snow and all around miserable conditions that keep residents firmly indoors as often as possible, the Great Lake Swimmers decided to hunker down in one of their country's most esteemed locations, a Royal Canadian Legion Pub. Soon dubbed "The Legion Sessions", GLS chose the hallowed local in-which to capture live, many of the new songs from their freshly minted new album Lost Channels. The group enlisted the help of gifted young director Scott Cudmore to create a raw and intimate window into the subtle power of the group's sound. On board capturing the music resonating within these cozy surroundings was none other than Graham Walsh from the experimental electronic group Holy F**k.
