    The fourth album by eclectic indie singer-songwriter Richard Swift opens with the subversively bouncy title track and the 1970s AM pop-influenced "The Original Thought." That playfulness and melodic invention continues throughout THE ATLANTIC OCEAN, by some distance more immediately accessible and tuneful than Swift's earlier releases, which tended more towards skeletal four-track experiments.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.84) - "[P]eppy keyboard pop, combining melodies that Elton John would envy with a gently sardonic voice that oozes regret..."
    Pitchfork (Website) - "Wisely keeping the looseness he found on GROUND TROUBLE JAW, Swift spruces everything else up with the sort of painstaking classicist touches that overly ambitious isnger/songwriters have spent hours in the studio refining..."
    Clash (magazine) (p.110) - "Lyrically Swift's brevity for creating such fascinating songs is never less than impressive. Another classic."
