Super Side-Project: Swan Lake

Swan Lake isn’t just a ballet, but it’s now a super side-project for touted indie-rockers Dan Bejar (Destroyer, New Pornographers), Carey Mercer (Frog Eyes), and Spencer Krug (Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown). The three musicians recently teamed up in a Canadian summer cottage town to record and self-produce debut album Beast Moans (out Nov. 21), and that album’s “All Fires” is a hauntingly gorgeous track.
