A compact disc released in Japan by the 7e.p. label combining two LAKE albums from 2013, The World Is Real [KLP246] and their self-released Circular Doorway.
LAKE's comprehensive pop vision has always been anchored in an honest mournfulness, a sensitivity to nature, and the vulnerability of life. These mark LAKE's more downtempo, contemplative grooves, which are given their fullest voice yet on The World Is Real [KLP246], LAKE's fourth album for and sixth overall.
Circular Doorway was recorded & written in six days in Anacortes, Wash. at the Unknown, Circular Doorway is an experiment that developed into ten of LAKE's most powerful collections of songs. The band showed up planning to just record and see what happened, with Karl Blau in the producer's chair, no real plan in mind. Some magic mojo musta been floating around, because it turned out to be incredibly fruitful. "No Wonder I" was featured on Cartoon Network's hit show, Adventure Time, in the episode Shh!
