Kurt Swinghammer – Jack Layton And Grace Appleton
|Kurt Swinghammer - Jack Layton & Grace Appleton|
Release Date: Out Now
Right here we have a lo-fi, quirky slice of indie-pop that also manages to pull on a heart string or two – a rare and rarefied combination. Another rarity is that this song is probably the only one, ever, to mention the Niagara Falls Horticultural Society. Toronto residing Kurt Swinghammer (great name) has produced this strangely perky tune named ‘Jack Layton and Grace Appleton’ as an ode to the passing of both Swinghammer’s mother and a politician greatly revered by many. Musically, it’s in the same sphere as Jim Noir, Badly Drawn Boy and David Kitt with complex lyrical combinations and instrumentation that builds layer upon layer to create an almost prog rock vibe. A great way to mark the passing of two people who were obviously big influences and a beautifully personal song.
