Sea Wolf – Get to the River Before It Runs Too Low

Published by at 7:25 pm under MP3's


Days like today let us know that summer is around the corner, at least in Chicago, and it feels like it’s just about that time to start rounding up those summer tunes. I don’t know about you, but I for one, love this time of the year when you can drive with the windows down, breeze in your face, and enjoy some wonderful music (of course, I keep driving to a minimum, as to not upset the environment, not to mention the $4 a gallon gas prices we will soon be looking at.)

Today, I decided to listen to Sea Wolf’s 5 track EP, Get to the River Before It Runs Too Low, which just came out Tuesday. If you are looking for some new music for the spring, I highly recommend this EP. It has a perfect spring feel to it–just enough pop to help transition out of that gloomy winter mode. Sea Wolf is the new project of former Irving member Alex Church. Alex lives in Los Angeles, and is currently touring with the Silversun Pickups, who share the Dangerbird label with him. His full album is set to come out September 7.

Get to the River Before It Runs Too Low:

Sea Wolf – The Garden You Planted

Sea Wolf – You’re A Wolf

Here is the music video for “You’re A Wolf” ( The video features Silversun Pickups’ Brian Aubert on guitar, SSPU’s Joe Lester on bass and Great Northern’s Solon Bixler on drums)

    That description is perfect. I’m picturing driving along in some coastal region with the window down and infinite ocean scenery to the left… now if only I had my driver’s liscense. But oh well.

    I’d heard a handful of Sea Wolf songs before [You’re a Wolf, Middle Distance Runner and Black Dirt] but I haven’t listened to the songs in a while. You’ve got a knack for reminding me to pay more attention to things I’ve already heard, and also for introducing new and wonderful things to my ears.

    And I think I figured out why I like reading your blog so much [aside from the great music]. It’s because you writing seems to come from a very real, music-loving place. You don’t write with pretentious air that music bloggers/critics can sometimes get. So yeah. That’s your thing. Insightful words about music without all the posturing. Nicely done.

    Uhhh… no, I am not leaving another comment…

    [I just forgot to direct your attention to Mark Wilson, a super cool dude out of Canada who I think is going to be getting some major attention with his upcoming CD. Let me know what you think. I just saw him play a show last weekend and it was great. His harmonica got stuck in his hair. Anyway,

    hello from spain.

    Alie, thank you for your very nice comments–they make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I think it’s important for people to listen to music for themselves, and come to their own conclusions, and it often feels like critics try to push their own opinions down the throats of people who are willing to listen. After reading reviews on sites like Pitchfork, I realize that I only understood maybe 1/10th of what the reviewer said. So instead of bashing bands that I don’t like, I only post music that I do like, and the sample mp3’s let others make up their own minds.

    Also, thanks for bringing Mark Wilson to my attention! I really like his music. I’ll probably make a post at some point and will be sure to give credit where credit is due on the great find. Hopefully, he was able to retrieve his harmonica?

    hello from the united states, fer!
    thank you for your kind words, i really appreciate your comment, and am glad that you found music that you like.
    you must have great taste in music, as well.
    thank you, again.

    You are indeed welcome! And I like/wholeheartedly agree with your philisophy about music. And I have the same problem with reading some reviews, it’s like a highly condensed and boring version of a music magazine. They just try to cram way too many band references and such into it, it kinda takes away from the music itself.

    Yessss glad you like Mark Wilson. My brother was the one who introduced me to his stuff, so I can’t really take the credit for that discovery. But I’ll be looking forward to your post on him!

    Haha, yeah he got his harmonia unstuck’d. It was all quite amusing, he had to get one of his friends to come help him get it out and said something like “I guess I should comb my hair more.” Heh…
