RICHARD SWIFT’S SXSW Daytrotter Session Now Available For Download

When RICHARD SWIFT was not spending his 2009 SXSW stint absolutely blowing socks of crowds with his live version of “Lady Luck,” he also found some time to record a session with the venerable Daytrotter. Here, we find Richard beautifully knocking out four jams from his latest longplayer, Atlantic Ocean, and Mr. Daytrotter, Sean Moeller, finally nailing what we’ve always wanted to say about Richard: “Everyone I know who knows about Richard Swift – either knows him personally or solely through his music – find themselves getting exasperated quickly in their blushing and energetic approval of the man’s songwriting, of his sensibilities, of his knack, of his timelessness and of his genius. They all use that word – that G-word, we all do, when we get going about Dicky Swift…He writes songs that are forceful, innocent, damaged and resplendent without being tricked out and ‘worked on.’”

Check out the all the tunes HERE.
