Struth! It’s Lake Ruth, ain’t that the truth?

Lake Ruth – One Of Your Own Lake Ruth first came to our attention via their super remix of Le SuperHomard’s “Dry Salt In Our Hair”. This is “One Of Your Own”, their wonderful new single. The song nods in the direction of many new wave progenitors, putting me in mind of The Associates, early…

In some ways a beginning is just The Other End

The Other End – Far From Home As debuts go this is pretty special. As new songs go, this is pretty special. We love it here at SWIT when we get in on the ground floor (so to speak) with a new band. This elevator is definitely going through the glass ceiling. “Far From Home”…

Your life will be fuller with Color Dolor

Color Dolor – Revolution “Banger” usually signifies “sausage” to me, only very rarely does it apply to a song in my opinion, in a good way anyway. I can say “Revolution” by Color Dolor is the rare exception. It’s a perfect expression of the personal revolution that happens when you find real friendship when shared…

Black Kids are back kids.

Black Kids – Obligatory Drugs By complete chance I decided to look up Black Kids today and nearly fell off my chair when I saw they had actually released something new. You see I completely adored this band’s debut album. I think it’s one of the greatest records ever recorded containing a run of singles…

Woods End it be good to be in your shoes

Woods End – Firewood Woods End got in touch with us and I’m glad they did.This is superb.I adore the album cover too. I asked the guys for some words on it Well, the track is a slower, heavier tune inspired by 16 Horsepower, depicting the struggle of keeping warm during the long winters of…

I could Abraham Murder a cold beer

Abraham Murder – I Am Electricity Abraham Murder is the alter ego of multimedia artist Igor K. “I Am Electricity” is the lead single from his new LP “Scarlet Distance” (released in December ’17 on Winslow Records). It’s a brilliant song with sharp new wave edges. It’s immediate, cool and clever and brings to mind…

Swit dreams with Marie-Louise Munck

Marie-Louise Munck – Dead Calm Ocean Elegiac, poetic, mesmeric, a requiem for a dream, sad and hopeful in equal measure, Marie-Louise Munck’s “Dead Calm Ocean” has been the song I’ve played over and over again this week. “Dead Calm Ocean” is the first single and video from her new album “Moon Dogs” (DME) which is…
