Album Notes
Swallows just got done recording their full length with Radio Sloan, formerly of the Need, and are hot off the road of an excellent West Coast Tour.
This single features songs off the new album, "Me with Trees Towering" which is slated for release in Oct 06 on Sarah Dougher's Cherchez La Femme Projects.

Swallows is a postmodern psychemotive rock duo hailing from Portland Oregon. Since 2003, they have played numerous shows in the northwest with regional artists such as Anna Oxygen, Jen Wood, Niki Click, Rebecca Gates and Emily Herring. They were also featured on Portlands cable access show, The Politics of Dance, and were awarded Radio Star status on Church of Girl Radio in January 2006.

Front woman Em Brownlowe has a compelling emotive live personal with a voice that is clear and powerful with an impressive range of style and mood. Jon Miller takes an atypical approach to keeping the beat with a unique blend of tom heavy power percussion and dance-worthy cymbal crashing. Together they create songs that contain a wide variety of stylistic influences ranging from pop, math rock, blues, garage, metal and experimental art rock.

Punk Planet

Punk Planet Review, Issue 72
In the mid-nineties, the kids at K-Records promised free CDs 4 Lyfe to anyone brave enough to tattoo herself with the label's logo. I wouldn't have done that, but I might consider the Cherchez La Femme version. The label, founded by Sarah Dougher in response to the post-Mr. Lady void, is dedicated to the work of "ladies and queers" like Katastrophe, Sara Jaffe, and Dougher herself. It's vital work, and few others are doing it so actively (even if Dougher hasn't updated her website since the spring). Basically, I'd wheatpaste telephone poles and stand in the front row for any and all of these artists. But I wanna dance, too, and most of them don't exactly get me twitching. Usually, I'm left frustrated, torn between truth in folk or ass-shaking misogyny. God bless the Swallows, a Portland guitar/drum duo with bruising toms and clear, blue sky vox. They're nowhere near Sleater-Kinney's technical expertise, but I will say that when Em Brownlowe's voice soars halfway through "All the Wind in the World," I thought of Corin and almost cried. (And when guest Ruth Yoder (Sick Sick Sister) growls "I'm so fabulous! I'm so pr-etty" on the Radio Sloan remix of "Still Still Still", I nearly pumped my fists on public transit.) This is a 9-minute, 3-song release, so you might want to save your pennies for the full-length (out now), but christjesuslord, buy it and meet me near the stage. (MC)
