Super World Indie Tune Of The Day: Gary Olson – “Giovanna Please”.

Super World Indie Tune Of The Day 03.04.2020: Gary Olson – “Giovanna Please”. I don’t say this lightly but the moody aural landscape of “Giovanna Please” put me immediately in mind of Wichita Lineman. Yep, it’s that good. It’s got that beautiful seventies pop sound – the strings and guitar marry to delightful effect, the…

SWIT Sounds Abound #8

A Slice Of Life – Restless Gods (Wool-E Discs) We featured A Slice Of Life’s debut ep last year, now Dirk Vreys has been in touch again to announce their full debut LP called RESTLESS which will be released on the 15th of August via Wool-E Discs. Back then I said “I guess artists like…

Friedrich Sunlight won’t rain on your parade

Friedrich Sunlight – Kommen Und Gehen (Tapete) Kenji Kenji certainly comes and goes from project to project, from tune to tune, does the man ever get a moment’s rest? Are we complaining? Not in the least. “Kommen Und Gehen” is another songwriting masterclass – simply perfection from the wonderfully melodic vocals, the harmonies and especially…

SWIT’S Best Of 2017 Part 1

We’ve posted nearly a billion tunes this year and they were all great to begin with, so whittling that down to the best odd 100 or so was never going to be an easy task, it is with great pleasure (at re-listening to everything again and again) and pain (at having to exclude some great…

Super World Interview Time: Kenji Kenji drives us bananas

Kenji Kenji is a workaholic and creative dynamo. He’s’ got more groups that you’ve had hot dinners, missus. We’ve covered a few, Friedrich Sunlight, I guess they’re his main squeeze (Tapete), The Golden Eaves and of late the aptly-named Eccentric Blabla (Kleine Untergrund Schallplatten). What they all share in common is a wonderful gift for…

The Imp in Zimt falls mainly on the plinth

Zimt – Ideal ist nichts This is the kind of band that tosses aside the ideal, that washes their expensive new vinyl in streams, possibly for clearer sound. The kind of people who look cool and self-conscious and cool at the same time, who smile without smiling while smiling. This is the kind of band…

A different class of Clientele

Late summer is such a wonderful time of year when the feckless sun slips a little lower in northern skies and the dusty heat leaves a taste of nostalgia lingering on the tip of your oh so very sweet tongue. My mind races back to woozy Saturdays on Camden Lock and then shuttling home on…

It’s OK to love DLDGG (It’s impossible not to)

Die Liga der gewöhnlichen Gentlemen – Die Welt braucht mehr Leute so wie Dich Die Welt braucht mehr Leute so wie Dich from Die Liga der gewöhnlichen Gentlemen has one of the best openings of a track I’ve ever heard and the tune itself sounds like a timeless classic already. 10 Swits out of 10….

Zimt-y played guitar

Zimt – Schwaches Herz “Schwaches Herz” is the new single from Zimt’s forthcoming debut album – “Glückstiraden” which will be with us in August on that super German label Tapete Records. It’s a charmingly ramshakle indie-electro lo-fi meisterwerk. This is just com-pletely addictive after 3 or 4 plays. And the video, well, I haven’t seen…
