Shearwater's first release on the Sub Pop label, Animal Joy, is more aggressive than previous albums, focusing on the moments in life that, as lead singer Jonathan Meiberg describes, "bring your blood to the surface."

Fresh off their tour opening for Sharon Van Etten, the band sits down with Mac Wilson and talk about the new album, their controversial music video and the current tour.

Songs played: "Dread Sovereign," "You As You Were," and "Breaking The Yearlings."
