Swingin' Utters Poorly Formed on LP + Download
Seminal street punk legends Swingin' Utters keep up the momentum created by their 2011 comeback album with the release of their latest opus Poorly Formed. Not to abuse an obscenely overused cliche, but these guys keep getting better with age. Poorly Formed is anything but what the name suggests. To the contrary, it reflects Swingin' Utters' ever expanding musical proficiency.
Obviously they've got the punk rock end of the spectrum nailed, and have always had a flare for folk and country as well, but this album sees them hone their indie/post-punk/garage-rock skills. Part of that is due to the emergence of Jack Dalrymple (of One Man Army fame) as a contributing songwriter for the first time since he officially joined the band and started recording with them on their last full-length.
Mix that with Johnny Darius' well established songwriting prowess, and round it out with their collective pop sensibilities, and what you end up with is a truly unforgettable album. Picture some classic Swingin' Utters with a dash of Gang of Four and a pinch of The Strokes, all wrapped up in a bunch of catchy melodies and you'll start to get an idea of what you're in for with Poorly Formed. Mixed by Chris Dugan (Green Day). LP also includes a digital download of the full album.
