Richard Swift - Dressed Up For the Letdown Vinyl LP
Richard Swift Dressed Up For the Letdown Vinyl LP
Richard Swift confidently composed yet another original masterpiece with 2006's Dressed Up For the Letdown; employing an archaic attitude of tempered restraint on a fresh collection of ten songs, without appearing shamelessly retro or kitschy. Playing a vast majority of the instruments himself, by virtue Swift created something that is characteristically his.
And considering his rough-around-the-edges exterior, one could rightly assume that Swift desires the listener to accept him as an ordinary honest man with some honest songs -- unmasked blemishes and all. Yet when one engages with Swift on this narrow-road-less-traveled, one immediately ignores the subtle imperfections shadowed by the all-consuming white light of well-crafted pop songs in an analog heaven.
