Employing an archaic attitude of tempered restraint on a fresh collection of ten songs, without appearing shamelessly retro or kitschy. Swift leads the faithful further into a melancholic world draped with colorful sonic landscapes. This is his first new material recorded since 2001 and is the follow-up to the re-release of his double CD "The Novelist / Walking Without Effort" in 2005. He's toured with My Morning Jacket, the Walkmen, Elbow, Josh Ritter, Jens Lekman, and Earlimart, earning a reputation for a live rock revivalist, conjuring up images of classic period Dylan and the Band from the late '60s and early '70s.
