Richard Swift: "As I Go"

Photo by Lance Alton Troxel

Richard Swift lives in the past. In the pages of a book you haven't yet read, between the pages of that book. One which is tucked away in one of those stuffed, cramped, overstocked 'mini-library like' bookstores of discarded and traded books. This song, Richard Swift's, "As I Go", is like one of those books, but without the musty smell. Without the green splatter abstract of mildew on the inside cover. This music has a gleam, glimmering beneath the brushed drums and Swift's worn in friendly voice. Much of Swift's output has this sound, this effect. Mr. Swift is obviously comfortable in the past.
