7/10 Ian Staff review, 20 November 2013

Featuring former members of Okkervil River, Shearwater originally knocked this record out just to pass the time between full length albums but it’s ended up being a full-on, bona fide release.

Covers albums can often be either a little too tongue-in-cheek or too pompous for their own good. ‘Fellow Travellers’, however, has a certain charm about it. Covers albums are usually full of well-known hits from classic artists, and this one acts as a thank you to all the bands and musicians that Shearwater have played with over the last few years (most of them relatively unknown in mainstream terms).

Featuring songs by St. Vincent, Wye Oak, Lou Barlow’s Folk Implosion and even some of those artists within the recording process. Clinic add a little synth sparkle to The General’s ‘Fucked Up Life’ and Shearwater’s Jonathan Meiburg does a lovely duet with Sharon Van Etten on ‘A Wake For The Minotaur’.

‘Fellow Travelers’ is like glancing back through a scrapbook: a diary of the highs and lows of a band on tour, without having to spend hours and hours on a smelly coach!
