Swan Lake is the collaboration of Spencer Krug (Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown), Dan Bejar (Destroyer, The New Pornographers), and Carey Mercer (Frog Eyes). Their second album Enemy Mine (named after this sci-fi flick) came out in March (via Jagjaguwar). Showcasing three distinct artists, the album’s a bit all over the place – sometimes poignant, sometimes exhausting – but worth a listen overall. Krug’s tracks (“Paper Lace”/”Settle On Your Skin”/”A Hand at Dusk”) are the highlight for me…classic poetic/obtuse indie fare, dripping with romance. His songs bring me back to my college days when I would spend my time analyzing cryptic indie song lyrics instead of studying..”Pink Bullets” comes to mind..ahh to be young again.

I love love love this song. “What’s in the world? What’s in the hearts of pretty girls?”
