Swallow reminds me of the Winter 94/95. I was listening to them almost everyday and San Francisco was colder than normal, which works out because they’re like the York peppermint patties of dream pop: wintery and sweet. I read somewhere they hated being typecast as the new Cocteau Twins (they joined 4AD records around the time the Cocteau Twins left), especially since 4AD made John Fryer produce their album “Blow”. 4AD in turn released “Blowback,” a limited edition version of “Blow” but produced by the band – same songs but with a darker, experimental soundtrack feel to it. This reworked version of “Head in a Cave” is my favorite from it. It’s like the most accurate way I know how to describe my recurring nightmarish sleep paralysis.
