Album Notes
As singer/songwriter for The Glad Version, Adam Svec is familiar with the construction of a pop song. In contrast with The Glad Version’s full bodied production, Svec’s Enemy Swimmer is a deliberate attempt to hold back the studio reins and stick to the basics. While dealing with his childhood, relationships, and anxieties, Svec lets his voice and the simplicity of the song structure do the storytelling. Engineer extraordinaire Tor Johnson builds beautiful soundscapes behind the skeletons of Svecs’ tracks that span from the loneliness of a solo acoustic guitar to the comforting full arrangement of an air organ, a muted banjo, a wurlitzer, and a box filled with bells. Enemy Swimmer is recommended if you like John Vanderslice, Death Cab for Cutie, and Sufjan Stevens.
