"Missed Flights and Fist Fights" was recorded in January of 2015 at Analogue Cat Studios in Northern Ireland by Julie Mclarnon. The record is a collaboration between myself, my long time collaborator, Bill Lowman, and Alasdair Roberts. It is a record of Scottish and American folk songs, reconfigured in Northern Ireland.
"Unicorn Chasers" by SWCK is a psychedelic record based around different mouth harps from around the world. Recorded in the early fall of 2009 by Brad Gallagher and Ashur Kando at IV Labs Studio (engineered and mixed by Chris Harden), the album seeks to create the folk music of a mythical group of neo-native peoples that hunt/fight Unicorns in a post-apocalyptic world. Additional instrumentation is provided by Pat Samson on drums (former member of US Maple and current member of Miracle Condition), Chris Harden, on guitar and pipe organ, charango, guitar and throat by Gallagher, and thumb piano and throat by Kando. "Unicorn Chasers" was released on Atavistic Records (Chicago, IL) in 2011. Artwork by Ben Marcus, concept by SWCK.
