‘The Swell’ by Rosie Caldecott
Monthly Recommendation #1. Rosie is one of those musicians I've known for very nearly ever. She has a voice and a style unlike anyone else I've heard, and I was going to recommend this track from her last album, but then 'The Swell' came along. Her songs often flow in a stream of consciousness, and this one really captures that. At least part of the credit should go to producer Niko O'Brien at Upcycled Sounds, for really getting that weird dreamy oceanic sound down - particularly at 1 min 35 secs when the groove kicks in. Now, I'm not going to recommend that you take a shit-tonne of drugs to listen to this track. But neither am I going to recommend that you don't. Let's just leave it at that, shall we. Current favourite aspect: Writing this post on a narrowboat in the wind, which is gently (and not-so-gently) lilting as I type.
