Expanding on the sound of his critically acclaimed '07 debut, 'Leaves in the River', that featured the track "'You're A Wolf", Sea Wolf returns with his second LP, White Water, White Bloom. According to Sea Wolf, aka Alex Brown Church, right from the get go the intention was to have a fuller band sound on the new album, with lush and fuller arrangements. Recruiting the help of producer/multi-instrumentalist Mike Mogis (Monsters of Folk, Rilo Kiley, Bright Eyes) didn't hurt in achieving the desired effect, as the new disc is filled out by string sections, piano's, organs, and violin and cello's, creating a much bigger sound than on his quiet debut. One great example of the new orchestration is the soaring album track, "Wicked Blood."
