Joy Week: Day Four




It's The Beatles and The Four Seasons and a false ending and a great drum break and strings and church bells and harmony. I love every song on Swag's one and only release, "Catch-All." But "Louise" takes the cake.

Of the three album tracks you chose, this is the first I've actually heard before! Swag definitely one of those hidden gems of a project. Funny how even when you stumble across a band and enjoy it that they can still slip off your radar because they don't ever get on other people's radar and thus you don't keep getting reminded of them or hear them played or written about. I'm sure we all have obscure favorites we are passionate about. But this reminds me I need to go back and pay more attention to those left field offerings I actually heard and loved the first time around...and then promptly put away. Oh music, why is there so much of you?

My joy offering for the day is Rufus Wainwright's "Imaginary Love," great swirling finale to his debut album that I heard for the first time amidst thousands of people outside the old Yankee Stadium by the giant bat waiting for a friend with a big silly grin on my face.

At least three-quarters of the reason that you love every song on this record is the staggeringly gifted contributions of one Doug Powell - a highly under-regarded talent and guiding light of the Swag project. I wish the world had more generally availed itself of his offerings as a solo artist. Truly unique, distinctive, and inimitable stuff!
