Swoon Review

by Nitsuh Abebe

Champaign/Urbana, IL's Swoon combine two rather disparate rock elements -- a good deal of their self-titled release consists of mellow, spacey and highly atmospheric guitar rock, but the band also uses this sound to make frequent excursions into heavy rock or grungy guitar constructions. The resulting sound doesn't seem well-formed enough to appeal to fans of either influence, but Swoon deserve credit for pulling it off with competence, and the album is a decent slice from a fairly unique vein of rock.
