Krautrock, Synthpop Anyone?
I’m A.S. Swanski. I do a lot of things. Music is one of them. I write and play songs. I need this. Music has been my love all my life. Plus, I have this urge to create something I haven’t heard before.
In a time when algorithms decide which music is worth listening to, and with “alternative” artists that are often as dull as the mainstream, we need songs that make you wonder what the hell is happening here. Music that asks questions rather than saying I love you. That’s what I try to make.
If this sounds a little weird to you: press reviews say that my songs move between cinematic krautrock and disturbing synthpop. Not my words, but it sounds good. It’s experimental music, yet with a strange pop sensibility. Simple and complex, dark and light, sweet and sour.
Download My Music – Free?
I put a lot of time, effort and money into everything I do (music, blogs, videos etc.) and you can enjoy it almost instantly and for free, if you wish. All my digital music is offered on a “pay what you want” basis. So, download if you like it. I don’t want my songs to live in a cage. At the top right of this page is a button where you can download my album Electro Noir. Do it!
This doesn’t mean that financial support isn’t appreciated. Even if you send me only one dollar, you show more respect and generosity than many other music fans. And you will win my eternal friendship.
In the meantime I have a coffee and a sandwich. Yes, I’ve got to eat, too! What a busy life!
