“Swirl” is a very creative and lofi cd with indie rock songs that vary widely in style, sound and feel. Somewhat like Yo la tengo, They might be giants and Beck. This 2007 digitally remastered/remixed version of Sleeping Dogs Lie’s debut 1996 cassette tape is combined with 10 new songs. Some of the new additions are old songs that have been reworked and some are brand new songs that have never been released. A couple of the new songs include "You're too old to ride a pony" and "Stick it to the man".
These songs were selected from over 100 songs that were the initial Sleeping Dogs Lie four-track home recordings.
The Swirl CD is currently available in a limited-edition custom hand-packaged homemade box with 22 individual lyrics cards. This limited-edition release is still available.
