Dust in the Gold Sack by Swearin'

“Slightly losing my mind as usual due to work, school, my housing situation, this eternal winter and of course because of a woman. I've been responding to all of it by listening to something so poppy and sugary that it hurts. Swearin's album, Surfing Strange was just what I needed, they came to my attention because their lead singer is twins with singer/ songwriter Waxahatchee, who's album Cerulean Salt was the best album Liz Phair never made. Swearin' is just great simple pop punk, which has traditionally been the domain of whiny guys singing about how much their life sucks so it's refreshing to hear a woman sing about her crumbling relationships too, let the bitter sweetness commence!”
