Great Lakes, Great Band

So apparently my radar is a wee bit off lately because I'm only just NOW finding out about the Brooklyn based duo, Great Lakes, when in fact they've been a band for a decade.  But better late than never!  Their third full length, "Diamond Times," is a testement to the power and brevity of pop music.  Full of sweeping melodies, romantic tendencies and melancholic occurances, "Diamond Times" is pretty much everything I could've asked for in an album.  It's lovely and soft, but poppy at times as well with just a hint of twang.  And for some reason when I listen to it I'm tempted to go to a large field of grass, take off my shoes and lie down - which, in my opinion, is not such a bad thing for music to encourage.  Stream four of their songs on their myspace page right now!
