Richard Swift
Ground Trouble Jaw / Walt Wolfman

The wonderfully voiced and sadly late Richard Swift first released Ground Trouble Jaw as a digital EP in 2008. Secretly Canadian are here to give it the vinyl treatment at least, aligning it with 2011’s Walt Wolfman EP for good measure. Both EPs represent Swift’s warmth and humour, kind voice and charming mixtures of indie, doo wop and R&B.

Richard Swift
The Hex

Richard Swift sadly died on 3rd July, 2018. He was 41 years old. The gifted musician, songwriter, producer and filmmaker had worked with a number of acts in his career including Damien Jurado, The Shins, Foxygen (producing their first and best album) and The Black Keys. The Hex is Swift's final album which he completed shortly before his death. He put everything into this record - from cathartic songs about his late sister and mother to a patchwork of influences such as Doo-Wop, Wall of Sound, Funkadelic, Captain Beefheart, Bo Diddley and Link Wray. It’s a real shame that it will be his last album, but it looks like he has unwittingly saved the best until last. LP and CD on Secretly Canadian.

Damien Jurado & Richard Swift
Other People's Songs Volume One

Damien Jurado and Richard Swift first worked together on Jurado’s Saint Bartlett album. Since then they’ve formed an artistically successful partnership and recorded Jurado’s Maraqopa trilogy of albums. Around the time they first met, they recorded a bunch of covers together on a 4-track, reworking songs by artists as diverse as Chubby Checker, John Denver and Kraftwerk. Other People’s Songs Vol. 1 is an insight into how the pair work together viewed from a different perspective.

Richard Swift
Dressed Up For The Letdown

Late singer/songwriter and producer Richard Swift probably wasn’t appreciated as much as his talent suggests he should have been in his lifetime. The closest he came to making it big was with his 2006 album, Dressed Up For The Letdown. It’s an album of great songs and nicely smudged mid-fi production. Reissue LP on Secretly Canadian.
