THE FANTASTIC Lakes Myth Culture are that rarity, a folk-rock group that actually stones out, while at exactly the same time taking the mystery and question of the original folk narrative and adapting it for this day. Located in Michigan, the fantastic Lakes Myth Culture attract the lion’s talk about of their motivation from existence in the Mitten Condition, through the wreckage from the Engine City towards the freezing splendor from the Top Peninsula, and their literate but passionate music offers earned them a faithful pursuing in the Midwest, and a developing audience elsewhere over the United States. THE FANTASTIC Lakes Myth Culture (or GLMS) had been shaped in early 2004 following a demise of the initial Siblings of Like, a likewise themed group located in Ann Arbor, MI. Shaped in 1996, the initial Siblings of Like released two well-received albums and toured thoroughly (specifically in the Midwest), however in nov 2003, the group’s record business, The Telegraph Business, proceeded to go bankrupt and violinist Liz Auchinvole opted to keep the group. The rest of the members from the music group — Timothy Monger (accordion, acoustic guitar, and vocals), Wayne Monger (acoustic guitar and vocals), Gregory McIntosh (acoustic guitar and vocals), Scott McClintock (bass and vocals), and Fido Kennington (drums and vocals) — opted to keep with a fresh name that shown their tight local focus, and the fantastic Lakes Myth Culture were created. GLMS wasted virtually no time producing a name for themselves on Michigan’s golf club circuit using their rousing mixture of rock and roll, folk, and Americana, learning to be a constant draw within the Detroit/Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti picture, and in the springtime of 2005 they released their self-titled debut recording through the Boston-based indie label Prevent, Pop & Move. The disc gained enthusiastic evaluations and charted in the CMJ Best 200 soon after launch, and on the highway the music group shared phases with such notables and kindred spirits as the Gourds, Danielson, Andrew Parrot, and Saturday Appears Good if you ask me. In 2006, GLMS agreed upon on with QuackMedia, a media music and posting concern situated in Ann Arbor; the group’s second record, Compass Rose Bouquet, premiered through Quack in July 2007, accompanied by a limited-edition one in 2008.
