The Swing Letters – All Right Here

My old buddy Charles “Chuck” Anderson of the immortal One Man Running and Grimace (look around this place you can listen to oodles of their tunes) has a new band that I’m head over heals excited about. I was lucky enough to have “found” Chuck on Facebook again, but to know that he’s still doing music is a blessing for anyone lucky enough to listen. Don’t know too much about the Swing Letters, except they fucking rock. Apparently they have recorded a bunch of tunes and have one mastered so far, and let me say this first one is a humdinger. Can you say C-A-T-C-H-Y? The tune is written by the singer/guitar player, Rand Berke, (I believe he does all the song writing) and he’s no slouch when it comes to putting words to music. Chuck and the drummer make such a solid rhythm section that you’d have to physically hold your foot down to keep it from tapping along. For some reason early Talking Heads comes to mind. Anyway, they have a Facebook page of their own, so maybe if you dig the tune below as much as I did you could follow along with me and find out when they release some more…

EDIT: Their Reverbnation page is dead (sad). I did find this vid though and stoked to see Chuck do his thing (I miss that guy)…
