Critical Praise For A FOREST OF ARMS:

“The soundscapes created by Toronto’s Great Lake Swimmers are nothing if not panoramic… So lush is their sound at times, it’s easy to forget that the primary lead instruments are acoustic… A solid album with a number of beguiling songs and a lot of spirit…” – PopMatters

“Toronto quintet’s latest offering is packed with echoing vocals, soaring strings, and plenty of resounding acoustic guitar, double bass, and banjo.” – Consequence Of Sound

“They create a place where folk-rock meets country and bluegrass, and converge into a soothing, atmospheric lushness.” – Blurt

“’Don’t Leave Me Hanging’ is gorgeous—simple and direct.” – Pitchfork

“A Forest of Arms seamlessly creates sonic textures that inspire nature walks and drives across empty highways…” – Flood Magazine
