Minneapolis based band Big Lake has a knack for writing songs that creep up on you and take you by surprise. Their self titled debut featured this talent while neatly blending elements of indie rock, alt-country and folk.

Their forthcoming 2015 effort finds the band further exploring country music. With a change in their original lineup they traded synthesizers and driving drum beats for steel guitars and a shuffle. Their dusty sound, simple songs and Mazurek's voice find an honest, yet surprising home in country music.
