The Atlantic Ocean by Richard Swift

Poor Richard Swift. The singer and producer was a talented but troubled sort. As a producer he collaborated with all sorts of indie luminaries but he may end up best remembered for his ambitious sprawl of solo LPs. The Atlantic Ocean was his 2009 album -  a mixture of soul and pop where his ambitious arrangements hid darkly humorous lyrics about the music industry and hipster culture.

7/10 Jack 6th October 2015

With The Atlantic Ocean, Swift continues his surprisingly catchy oeuvre after the subtle yet very quality Dressed Up For the Letdown. The Atlantic Ocean is a bit more up-tempo, comprised of a weird yet intriguing inclusion of electronica weaving in between an omnipresent piano, lonely horn section, crunchy guitar and banjo ensemble. For me, the album starts out as any typical alternative rock album would but slowly morphs into a 70-ish guitar driven contemplation, to finally an echoing Motown dirge.
