Great Lake Swimmers is the 2003 self-titled debut EP from Canadian folk rock band, Great Lake Swimmers. The album was recorded in an old abandoned grain silo in Southern Ontario, and took several months to complete.
The band’s haunting sound finds its roots in vintage folk and alt-country colorings, shaped by accordion, piano, lap steel and acoustic guitar, with a voice that seems to come from the walls.

"Hombre Lobo" is Spanish for "wolf man" or "werewolf" and may be a reference to frontman, Mark Oliver Everett’s, unusually long beard; which he originally grew when writing the song "Dog Faced Boy”. As Everett himself claims, this album is more about animal instinct.
