Hi, welcome to SWIT’s Week, yes we’ve been to the cosy brown snows of the north, but we’ve also been to France, Catalonia, Minnesota, NYC, Australia, LA, Italy, Argentina and The Netherlands- yes we’re talking Tómas Jónsson, Sin Fang, N.O.Sonic, Luthea Salom, Gregg Garvey, Toby Martin, Yuzima, Super 1 Mundial, Bateleur, Bec Sandridge, Half Japanese, Gepsiz, Sequoyah Tiger, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and Frank&stein.
We interviewed Maggi from the ethereal amiina. Read it now before it disappears forever.
We raided the archive to hear about the music that moves Yuzima’s spirit.
Our Long Player of the week is “Idiot Mystic” by Near Myth. SWITGerry says “I’ve really fallen for Idiot Mystic the debut album by Near Myth from Melbourne Australia. Apart from knowing their way around great tunes what strikes me the most about this album is their ability to let each of the instruments breath.There isn’t layer upon layer of tracks. On this lp a simple drum roll,standalone vocal/guitar or synth break is used to fantastic dramatic effect.To put it simply they realise more is less. This is an impressive debut by a band that already know their sound and they’ve created an excellent piece of music here. Check it out guys you won’t be disappointed.” He knows his stuff.
Finally, our latest work of art to be hung in La Galleria De La Swit (?) is this wonderful primitivist masterpiece by Tom from The T.S. Eliot Appreciation Society!
This calls for scream therapy!
