Swearin' - Young

Swearin' like to go hard. I saw them play along with Waxahatchee (so this was the sisters Crutchfield bill) in Portland this past fall, and it was one of the best concerts I've been to in a long time. Swearin' play songs that are fast and loud and energetic, and catchy---some of their stuff reminds me of early Weezer B-sides, the ones that emphasized the power over the pop side of the spectrum. This is a band made for late spring/early summer. Who knows when you'll get a chance to listen to this music again in the proper context, because, for all we know, the climate might make a left turn and gently usher us into a new ice age (optimistic) or we will melt (realistic). Swearin' is a band for the NOW, for the moment. Hold on tight.
