Austin, TX is the land of Indie with “Austin City Limits” and “SXSW” as well as all the great bands that come from there. Here is another one. Shearwater was formed in 1999 from Jonathan Meiburg and Will Sheff of the fab Okkervil River, although Sheff is no longer with the band. The band’s name comes from the shearwater, a tribe of seabirds related to petrels and albatrosses. Meiburg, who holds a master’s degree in geography with a focus on ornithology, picked the name mostly for the sound of the word. Interesting indeed. Shearwater just recently released their latest Animal Joy on Sub Pop records and the sonic attack is wonderful. “Breaking The Yearlings” sounds like a revenge anthem in a shoot em up thriller featuring Jason Statham and “You As You Were” plays in the background as Jason pieces together his plan. He then receives the MTV movie award for the most carcasses left behind. Thank you Shearwater. All because of you! Check the tracks below and then grab this incredible album here on iTunes.
