Personally, I've always favored Shearwater frontman Jonathan Meiburg's other band, Okkervil River, to Shearwater. I probably always will. But that doesn't mean that Shearwater isn't any good, quite the opposite actually. I'm actually quite enjoying Shearwater's latest album Golden Archipelago. We're still a few weeks from the albums February 23rd release date on Matador but you can stream the album in full over at NPR.
