This track from Swearin popped up on Friday, and I’ve been spending my weekend pressing repeat over and over again. I could say that it’s the slight drawl accompanied by a female backing vocal. But, it might also be that I sort of see this group as the next logical step in the history of band’s aping Pavement. The guitar playing is simple but crunchy in all the right places. The group will be releasing their newest effort, Surfing Strange on November 5th via Salinas Records in the US, so you’ll do well to get this band on your radar; it should be their year if the album plays out like this tune.
