Richard Swift – MG 333

Taken from “Walt Wolfman,” the new record out now on Secretly Canadian. Richard Swift is performing as a touring member of The Shins this fall.

Richard Swift – Whitman

Richard Swift has announced the release of his forthcoming new EP “Walt Wolfman,” due out on October 18th via SECRETLY CANADIAN.

“I’ve got my own Whitman…Farewell, farewell/I hope it did you good/To say the things/My father never could,” Swift pines. The song is a cryptic salute to Walt Whitman, whose American lineage of primal, urgent art can be traced to include Kerouac and Dylan, Bo Diddley and Beefheart – right on through to modern outsider-pop wunderkinds like Swift. And according to Swift, “Whitman” is a nice taste of what we can expect from his next longform recording.”
