Album Notes
After two albums that eclectically mixed retro styles of prog, ballads, electronica, britpop, and soul, Anton Sword takes a decisive and canny turn towards the dance-able in 2012's EP, 'Here in the Hurricane.' Using many of the same players as on earlier releases (NYC indie session veterans Kristin Mueller on drums and Julian Maile on guitar) and with the addition of punkier bassist Gina Marie Rodriguez (ex-Detroit Cobras, Sans Culottes), Sword keeps the clever, cerebral, imagistic lyrics that marked his earlier songs but triples the foot-tapping, body-swaying factor. Dark synths swerve and electronic beats bubble across the record, mixing with the usual delicious guitar and keyboard pyrotechnics. The overall vibe is a bit new wave, a bit glam, and a bit LCD Soundsystem. Yet somehow, it all sounds authentic. Also, Sword's singing is much better than before. The title track seems to be the standout 'hit' of the release; it has also been abbreviated to an even more poppy single version, which is linked to a great video on the web. But each track is great in a different way; there's no filler here at all.
