But because Shearwater are yet to go overground like Arcade Fire or The National, ‘Fellow Travelers’ is very much an exercise in preaching to the converted. every other place and person you see will be long gone tomorrow, if not five minutes from now,’ reads Meiburg’s sleeve-note essay, ‘it makes the other bands you’re travelling with seem like the only other three-dimensional beings in the world.
But any discussion of Fellow Travelers needs to begin with I Luv The Valley OH! It’s not only the definitive Xiu Xiu because it’s the best song Jamie Stewart has written. It’s also a song that couldn’t be written or performed by anyone besides Jamie Stewart, at least not effectively. Sheared and watered down, the palpable danger of Stewart’s performance is replaced with cocksure pomp-while the exclamatory cry of the title in the original is one of the most harrowing, cathartic yells ever caught on tape, Meiburg’s haughty, oratorial style makes it sound like high school Shakespeare or just any old oh. Fellow Travelers can be seen as Shearwater showing their scratch work, and while great cover albums can be a revelation or an embarrassment, most end up right around here: which is to say, admirable and flawed. Few things can be tougher for an artist than to purely express themselves.

The term fellow traveller (also fellow traveler) identifies a person who is intellectually sympathetic to the ideology of a political organization, and who co-operates in the organization's politics, without being a formal member of that organization. In the early history of the Soviet Union, the Bolshevik revolutionary Trotsky coined the term poputchik ('one who travels the same path') to identify the vacillating intellectual supporters of the Bolshevik régime.

There are plenty of good reasons to listen to Shearwater: There’s the band’s admirably expansive ambitions, almost prog-level for an indie rock band. They made their mark by releasing an actual honest-to-god trilogy of albums. There’s the panache with which they pull up dramatic, dynamic flare-ups, their big choruses erupting out of placid stillness. There’s their light touch with orchestral arrangements. There’s Thor Harris, so good at pounding the shit out of drums and looking like a thawed-out caveman that Michael Gira poached him for the reactivated Swans.
