Andy Swan: Ottawa

Andy Swan’s Ottawa is one of the more charming flying-under-the-radar releases I’ve heard this year. I’ve always thought that my favorite albums and pieces of music sound like the soundtrack to a movie I’d rather imagine than see, and this is no exception. Swan adds charm to his already-sweet songwriting with lulling folk and old-time country instrumentation.

I’d been falling (no, it was more like diving) in love with the (I hesitate to say) glorious “Can I pay you with sunshine?” (I think we were introduced by Quick, Before It Melts) when Ottawa snuck into my mailbox back in Virginia. When I arrived home from Ohio for Thanksgiving break it was sitting on my desk and oh, was I excited. I hope you are too.

Should I mention he's Canadian, or is it obvious?
