Anthony Carew explores the catalogue of the late American studio wizard, Richard Swift. Swift died in July, aged just 41. He left behind a host of albums, recordings, productions, and collaborations, in which he toured through music’s past, and crossed paths with Damien Jurado, The Mynabirds, Foxygen, The Shins, The Black Keys, and more. A celebration of the musical history of a cult sonic genius.
