Last year, Philly-based punks Swearin’ released their great self-titled debut album, and we made them a Band To Watch. They’re already about to release their second album Surfing Strange, and we’ve interviewed leader Allison Crutchfield and posted first single “Watered Down.” This morning, they’ve shared another song, “Dust In The Gold Sack,” which goes back and forth between acoustic strum and fired-up fuzz-charge. It’s not that far-removed from Waxahatchee, the band led by Allison’s twin sister and former P.S. Eliot bandmate Katie, and their great fuzzed-up sophomore album Cerulean Salt. But honestly, I’m catching heavier flashbacks to prime Superchunk. The song rules, and you can hear it below.
Surfing Strange is out 11/5 on Salinas.
