Never More Together

by Oliver Swain

a rich and sublime example of Swain's personal obsessions; clawhammer banjo, bowed bass and slack key guitar style, and fascination with ethnomusicology. Modern rock and early R&B are curated within the traditionally-based songs.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The anticipated new album Never More Togetheris a rich and sublime example of Swain's personal obsessions; clawhammer banjo, bowed bass and slack key guitar style, and fascination with ethnomusicology. Modern rock and early R&B are curated within the traditionally-based songs, used as springboard into the imagination. The title track is a modern spiritual, leading out the album with Swain's instantly recognizable banjo, on top of lilting violin and a quick paced acoustic guitar beat. The tongue-in-cheek romp of "Maggie, Molly and Raul"unfolds into indie rock territory, and the crowd-favorite "Take Me Up"is an opus of universal proportions. From the grinding desire of "Apple Sucklin Tree"to the soulful "No Strange Thing", Never More Together is an adventurous listen; produced by award winning multi-instrumentalist Adrian Dolan, who also produced Swain's acclaimed solo debut. This time, engineering was done at the new Risque Disque facility in Cedar BC, retaining most of the BIG MACHINE cast introduced on his first album with a few new voices added to the mix, including recent collaborator in The Spark Project, Cellist Ben Sollee.
