Mostly only a video for today with a little related news with no better artist to gab about than Richard Swift. After all, it is first day of April.
Limitless, it seems with capabilities as a musician/producer, and get this – he lives and works in Oregon, but not in Portland! He has recently given word that recording has began for his next release at his own National Freedom in Cottage Grove. Amazing and Rare.
Mr. Swift first came to our attention by way of Eric D. Johnson of Fruit Bats – strongly suggesting we have him this year. On top of that, Eric also help organize our final show this winter for Benefest alongside Andy Cabic, Richard Swift, and even a rare Damien Jurado cameo. Many will remember how amazing that night was…
Speaking of Eric D. Johnson, just this week they made the announcement of the Eric D. Johnson curated Huichica Festival for June 4 in Sonoma, California. We’d certainly attend if possible, and urge everyone out there to get tickets for that in advance (on sale April 5). Fruit Bats, J Mascis, Sonny & The Sunsets, Richard Swift, Breathe Owl Breathe, These United States + others. Need we say more?
Amazing collaborations are everywhere. Watch for them at Pickathon.
