Overview

Spoken word musings, atmospheric samples, brushed drum grooves, and an assortment of serpentine guitarscapes are filtered together on Swoon's 1999 debut CD release, Milk. Comprised of Hood, Flange, and sometimes Bobby Breton, Swoon is joined on Milk by singing and sampling guests Madison and Epifanio. Their songs radiate an unobtrusive atmosphere in which space and time are encouraged to stretch. Milk projects a cinematic mood that is reinforced by the inclusion of a sanctimonious Robert Mitchum espousing his character's take on a two-fisted dichotomy between love and hate. Breton's relaxed and in-the-pocket grooves, which he often concocts with the help of brushes, give Swoon the soulful foundation and acoustic warmth that distinguish them from other post-techno instrumental outfits. Though Swoon draws upon such influences as Tom Verlaine, Glann Branca, and Low, their sound is neither derivative nor a homogenized blend of standard slow-core torpor. Swoon's Milk is fresh, frothy, and full of aural vitamins for the listener who is searching for a respite from the overstated and explicit.
