The Sw!ms: Ride of the Blueberry Winter (Prison Jazz)
release: February 28, 2006
rating: ***1/2

similar: Of Montreal, Dressy Bessy, SNMNMNM, Marbles

These guys are fun. Mad fun. Pennsylvania's Sw!ims has got a solid hold on a glorious blend of psychedelic indie pop by way of superific vocal harmonies, a Farfisa organ and a keen sense of arrangements. It's impossible to believe this band has members of noise band An Albatross. But they do. Fun times. -Kenyon
