New Swing Out Sister Cd Drops!

#1
Well it's been a long time coming...since the fall of 2014 as best I can recall, but Swing Out Sister finally dropped their crowd-funded CD, "Almost Persuaded"
It's available via all the usual digital download spots and from PledgeMusic.com.

They've matured past their sophista-pop sound of earlier days and have become unapologetically sophista-jazz (if that's not redundant) or at the very least, sophista-spa. Both the music and the production is excellent and was clearly worth the 3+ years it took to put it out. If there's anything negative to say it's that most of the music is not "happy" or "snappy". It's mostly deep & reflective, which is probably where Corinne & Andy are at this stage of their lives & careers. It's nice that crowd funding allows a band like this to depart from being a slave to top-40 charts and lets the music go where the artist(s) want it to go. If you want bubble-gum tunes this is not the CD for you, but if you appreciate very sophisticated and deep music and music production, you're going to love this CD.

LOVE SOS!

In my wedding sets, I still have Am I the Same Girl and Fa la La Means I Love You for dinner/cocktails.

I ave been a fan since Twilight World was released.
