We’re big fans of Crutchfields here at NYCTaper. First, there was Katie’s band Waxahatchee, from the Don Giovanni showcase earlier this year. Today its Swearin, the Brooklyn/Philly quartet co-fronted by Allison Crutchfield with Kyle Gilbride. Swearin were the third of the five band bill assembled at Maxwell’s to celebrate the new CD release by Shellshag on Saturday last. I was initially unfamiliar with the band, but immediately perked up my ears as their set contained instant catchy hooks and an energy that was hard to miss. As with their self-titled debut album, all of the songs in their set were 2-3 minute bursts of pop-punk goodness. We’re streaming “Movie Star” below which features Allison belting out her most heartfelt vocals of their short show. Swearin will play Death By Audio on May 10, also sharing a bill with Shellshag.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the Screaming Females set, and except for some noticeable crowd chatter in between songs, the sound is superb. Enjoy!
