Free EP album... Richard Swift


Singer/songwriter Richard Swift's lofi, sepiatone style harkens back to the tin pan alley age. Born in 1977, the California native spent his youth locked in his room with a fourtrack recorder, a device thatalong with a computerthe artist continues to utilize to this day. Influenced by everyone from Bob Dylan to earlyseventies dub acts like the Congos and Lee Perry, he has provided keyboards for shoegazeers Starflyer 59 and released two records of his own, Walking Without Effort and the Novelist, both of which were reissued on Secretly Canadian as a doublealbum in 2005. Kisses for the Misses arrived two years later. In 2008 Swift released Richard Swift as Onasis, a double disc EP.

Secretly Canadian is pleased to announce Ground Trouble Jaw, a new digital ep from RICHARD SWIFT, which is being given away for free for a limited time via our friends at EMusic. The EP is sure to please fans of classic Swift, as the five tracks run the gamut from 60s girl group pop to Motown soul to Onasis-flavored 50s street gang doo-wop to synth-fueled pop classics (think Prince sitting in on the "Plastic Ono" sessions) -- all with Swift's emerging trademark vocals which bring his songs to life like few other singers do today. Recommended!

Please, no Sam Sparro. We had him last year, when he was called Mika.

Maybe some Kills would be nice, though...
