Swerve – The Barrelhouse LP (Mixtape)


„This is most definitely my best work to date, and my most personal offering thus far. If you were a fan of Swerve & SYG’s Cold Winters & Warm Whiskey this will be right up your alley. To make sure you fully understand the concept please listen to the LP in the same order as the tracklist. Also be sure to read a little about the background of Barrelhouse’s and what they were all about (steht in der Vollansicht). Thank you for listening, and I hope you enjoy it.“ Swerve

Ich hab Swerve durch das oben genannte Projekt mit SYG kennen gelernt, fand es aber nicht so überragend. Da gefällt mir die EP The Barrelhouse eindeutig besser. Und endlich mal wieder ein Tape mit stringenter Story ohne abgehackte Themenwechsel ..

Barrelhouse-Hintergrund:

„Also known as a juke joint or a bar or saloon. The term originates from the storage of barrels of alcohol that were often turned into tables around the bar. Barrelhouse’s were set up on the outskirts of town, often in ramshackle buildings or private houses, they offered food, drinks, dancing and gambling for weary workers. They also birthed many genre’s of Blues and provided a circuit for emerging artists to travel and perform. The owners would often tend bar themselves and usually make extra money selling groceries or moonshine to patrons, or providing cheap room and board.“
