9/10 Brett Staff review, 24 June 2009
Hear ye, hear ye, Swans is a CD by The Rational Academy and it's on Someone Good, which presumably refers to me. It's an immediately striking one, kicking straight in with a lovely, highly melodic psychedelic folk-pop sound that doesn't follow the current trend for burying everything under layers of effects but instead goes for a mixture of instrumental elements (both acoustic and electronic) that work off each other largely in an environment of pure clarity - everything's produced (by Lawrence English) and played so expertly that its nudity doesn't hinder its otherworldly feel for a moment. Proper high class ass that at various points reminds me of Mazzy Star, The Knife and Broadcast without ever really sounding that much like any of them. Be warned though, it packs its ten tunes into but twenty minutes but it's quality over quantity all the way and that's totally fine by me.
