SWIMMERS
WE SWAM AS FOR BEHAVIOR OUR BEHAVIOR
LOUISIANA PURCHASE

Left of center rockers Swimmers have released a five-song sampler highlighting the outfit’s penchant for creating noise-laden punk rock nuggets. “Hot Pocket” sounds like the end result of a collaboration between System of a Down and Talking Heads, while “Domicile, Where I Live” provides a tense surf rock vibe under spastic vocals. Jagged, dissonant, and very bouncy in a thrift store t-shirt kind of way, this disc smartly combines the exaltations of a carnival with the omens of a rock ‘n roll show firmly in tow, making palatable rock music for the ADD crowd.
