Very excited this week to bring an exclusive interview and semi-acoustic acoustic set from Swig, a band I have been keeping an eye on for quite some time, ever since they dropped into my neighborhood open mic to try out some new tunes. As mentioned in the show, their music style, which they call Indy Blues (not Indie Blues, mind you), is based in the North Mississippi blues, with tinges of indie and alternative rock, a smattering of outlaw country, and the smallest hints of the irreverence of punk. Quickly moving from local gigs to the "Indy In-Tune circuit" of Studio B, Monday Night Live, and the PodConcert series and now into regional play, this is definitely a band to keep an eye on.
I should also mention, take a good look at the picture up there. That's the last of the "quaint, DIY studio" pics you're going to see for a while (actually, I take it back, Jeremy Vogt and Jon Martin used the same setup one last time about a half-hour after that picture was taken). Turns out, in addition to being an excellent drummer, Jamie Jackson also happens to be general manager of our local Sam Ash Music Center. Once he stopped laughing at the clever way I balance microphones on trash cans, with a mixer precariously leaning on a barstool because my cables are only 6-feet long, he arranged for Sam Ash to graciously donate boom stands, 25-foot XLR cables, and a lovely compressor/limiter to Studio B, which will no doubt raise the quality of our live recordings considerably. So, you'll forgive me if plug our friends at Sam Ash every once in a while for the forseeable future.
