This is on the free CD with this month's Word magazine and I absolutely, ABSOLUTELY, love it.
Word says nothing about the artist in question, but according to a review here, At Swim Two Birds is Roger Quigley, 'one half of The Montgolfier Brothers' who has been 'operating in the shadowy basements of the Manchester music scene for over 10 years' (?).
On his MySpace page he describes his influences as 'sinatra & jobim, wine, fucked-up relationships' and says his music sounds like 'post-relationships being taken to pieces, bit by bit, late into the night, a glass and fag on the go...'
I liked him even more after reading that.
The album is Returning To The Scene Of The Crime.
I'd love more info about this guy if anyone has it.
