Approved: Various Artists – Garage Swim

CMU Approved

Garage Swim

Given I’ve approved Bass Drum Of Death, King Tuff, Thee Oh Sees and Mikal Cronin in past months, doing the same to American telly station Adult Swim’s new ‘Garage Swim’ compilation LP – which features all four acts and others – was kind of a ‘no-brainer’.

Doing what it says on the tin, ‘Garage Swim’ dips into the dark and slightly dirty depths of is genre fix, starting with BDOD’s battle-scarred ‘Dregs’, and closing to the dreamtime static of Weekend’s ‘Teal Kia’.

Take a pay-nothing ‘Garage Swim’ today via SoundCloud:
