Richard Swift

Straight outta rural Minnesota comes Richard Swift with this, his third album.

His music however comes from somewhere between Tin Pan Alley and 70's Laurel Canyon, he takes these reference points and makes them sound like his own. However Swift is not a one trick pony or a revivalist and mixes things up to good effect. 'Most Of What I Know' and bar room sing-along 'Kisses For The Misses' are both great. However, the Paul McCartney sounding piano ballads feel a little stagnant and tired.

Pretty good but not all that memorable.
