Since their formation in 2003, Toronto-based folk-rockers Great Lake Swimmers have made four full-length albums, none of which were recorded in an actual studio (opting instead for abandoned grain silos, churches, historic music venues and renovated castles). For their fifth LP, the band finally broke tradition. The result is an album that is altogether pleasant, but just doesn’t do enough to distinguish itself on the map from the rest in its genre. Location, location, location.
