Boomkat Product Review:
Good Morning Tapes snag this ace chopped & screwed mixtape from "Californian artist & nomadic free spirit” Swampy, best known as a photographer and artist who's appeared in National Geographic, Time magazine & Juxtapoz.
Swampy's online diary/journal of his train hopping adventures set the backdrop for the mixtape, built around his own edits of everything from countrified railtrack blues to fuzzed out desert rock, bubbling 'soothing sounds for baby’ to slowed down gospel and squashed funk - all with evocative transitions and the littlest hobo vibes you just cant argue with. As the label put it:
“Swampy has an intuitive knack for not only capturing magical moments & incredible scenery on his travels, but also a gifted musical ear, crafting his own chopped & screwed edits to accompany these online visual diaries - which will melt any nostalgic heart that yearns to roam free.”
Aye, it’s a goodun.
