The Schwings Band's timeless sound is an engaging journey on new album
(Published: December 24, 2020)

The Schwings Band is a music group based in Vilnius, Lithuania. Their sound could be described as timeless and classic, as they have influences ranging from jazz to swing.

Their music is like a musical journey, and it will take you through the quarters of New Orleans, down into some smokey bar in Chicago with a sound that's engaging and immersive from the moment you hit play.

Their recent studio album, Good Thing, was released during the summer of 2020, and it holds up as a great representation of the band's sound and vision. The album consists of eight songs, including a second, faster version of the opening song, "Everybody," right at the end of the setlist, going for a beautiful full-circle finale. What sets this record apart is the fact that these musicians managed to combine their high-level skills with a sound that's warm and mellow, yet playful and colorful.

The album is all about sharing a joyous time with the audience, and the listening experience is all the more fun and magical because of it. In 2020, most of us haven't really been able to see a lot of live music. For this reason, the "live" vibes of this release are definitely welcome. Good Thing has a very organic sound to it, almost reminding the audience of what it would be like to see one of these songs performed on stage. These jazz scene veterans know a thing or two about balancing their dynamics and the title cut is a fantastic track that sets the bar higher in terms of genre definitions and musical aesthetics, going for a truly insightful approach to production and recording.

The song "Eik Sau" is one of the most emotional tracks on this album, and it is also one of my personal favorites, alongside "Desmond From Stardust" and "I've Got A Heavy Date." There is a sense of consistency binding these tracks together, yet every song has something quite special to offer, revealing the band's versatility.

With sax, piano, organi, vocals, double bass, drums, and trombone, the line up provides a diverse range of sound, making the listening experience more nuanced and captivating from the very beginning of the album.
