Great Lakes Myth Society
The latest CD from this Ann Arbor-based group is Compass Rose Bouquet, and on first listen it sounds a bit more commercial and easily accessible than the previous release (the pleasant but quirky Great Lakes Myth Society, from 2005). This indie band can rock when it wants to, but seems very content to be an eccentric contributor to the "Quiet Core" movement. Both CDs include tunes that are obviously about Michigan ("Marquette County 1959," for example). For more information, check out the band's Website.
