Watch Swearin’ rock out in a painter’s studio for their “Dust in the Gold Sack” video

Screen shot 2013-10-21 at 11.02.50 AMWest Philly based rockers Swearin‘ are about to head out on tour in support of their sophomore album, Surfing Strange, out next month on Salinas Records. Today we’ve got a casual and super fun music video that shows the four-piece rocking out to the irresistible single “Dust in the Gold Sack” in a painter’s studio with an awesome skylight. Not sure if this studio actually resides in the West Philadelphia house the camera pans across in the video’s opening moments, but its a pretty cool room nonetheless, filled with books and impressionistic portraits and books and Swearin’ frontwoman Allison Crutchfield’s twin sister Katie (of Waxahatchee) at about the 1:10 mark. Watch it below. Swearin’ kicks off tour with a Philly record release show at Golden Tea House on November 8th.

Download Radiator Hospital’s new album Something Wild, pre-order the vinyl LP

RadiatorHospitalAfter a boatload of EPs and limited run releases, Philly’s Radiator Hospital – the songwriting vehicle of midwest transplant Sam Cook-Parrot – is releasing a new full-length called Something Wild on Salinas Records next month, with limited time name-your-own-price downloads available today. True to the project’s earlier releases, this new set of music revolves around love and heartache as told through 50s and 60s pop songwriting styles – doo-wop to country – and filtered through a boisterous DIY punk sound. Parrot’s falsetto, somewhat nasal and utterly delightful vocals, makes him sound like a Daniel Johnston or Half Japanese for a new generation, but unlike Radiator Hospital’s back-catalogue, this set notches up the production. It’s still rough ’round the edges, but is much cleaner, more evenly mixed, and ready to be boomed out of bigger speakers. The album is out July 15th, and pre-orders can be made for the vinyl LP here. We also have word that Radiator Hospital will be playing a wicked cool July 4th block party in West Philly, with details forthcoming. In the meantime, check out “Down Again,” a cool track from the new album, in the player below, and get your limited time name-your-own-price download here.
