Swingin Utters
After more than a quarter century as a band, theres really only one thing you can count on being the same with each new record from the Swingin Utters, and that is that there going to make it a little different.From the first record, I wanted to mix it up as much as we could says co-founder Darius Koski. Playing with different genres and instrumentation makes it more interesting. As long as its a cohesive record, it works for us.

That dedication to not replicating any standard Swingin Utters sound & has resulted in what may be their most cohesive (and paradoxically, one of their most diverse) records yet: the brand new long-player Fistful of Hollow, which explores the Utters interests in far afield sounds including Britpop, mod, Celtic, country, folk, a solid foundation of West Coast punk rock.

Helping lend to the album-to-album multiformity is the fact that for the second album in a row, a member made his first forays into tunesmithing for the band. Devotees will remember that last time around, guitarist Jack Dalrymple stepped up to the plate, and this time around bassist Miles Peck got his first at-bat, co-writing four of the albums fifteen tracks with vocalist Johnny Bonnel.

Since returning from an eight year recording hiatus in 2011, Swingin Utters have been downright prodigious, releasing three albums in four years. And with so many influences, and so many band members pitching songs into the mix, it wont be long before theres a whole new batch of songs for you to suckle from the sonic teat of the Utters. If it was up to me, we wouldve had a record every year from the time we started exclaims Darius, but were just glad to get back on the map again an go on a real tour and see what happens.
