Wildcard Wednesdays: George Swan

Do you ever find you’ve been listening to the same five artists on loop? Yeah, us too. That’s why every Wednesday we’re shaking up your stereo with the most weird and wonderful sounds we can find. At best we’ll awake you from your musical slumber, at worst we’ll provide you with some musical fodder for thought. Take a chance on our wildcard and you might find they offer the kind of niche music you didn’t know you needed…

George Swan may ruffle some feathers with his unpalatable nickname, but you can’t fault his prolific output when it comes to music. The Canadian-residing artist has released three albums (and counting) for your delectation. Drawing inspiration from his upbringing in an unspecified swamp in the depths of British Columbia, some may call BDB’s sound ‘swamp rock’. Song titles like ‘Smelly Fish’ and ‘Tales from Wreck Dreck’ tell you all you need to know about his music. It’s the heavy, fuzzy, and wigged-out stuff of the 1970s- not so much Deep Purple as hoovering up the leftover brown acid from Woodstock though we should add. Dig into the three albums and you’re almost definitely going to be surprised with what you find…
