While it’s the first release from Swearin’ in five years, Fall into the Sun is a record that doesn’t try to obscure the passage of time but instead embraces it. “Getting older, your tastes change, and what you want to do changes,” says drummer Jeff Bolt. Those changes, though subtle, are impactful, making Fall into the Sun what Allison Crutchfield calls “the adult Swearin’ album.” It can be seen in songs like “Big Change,” where she says goodbye to Philly and the scene that she came up in, or in “Dogpile,” where Kyle Gilbride offers the line any aging punk can relate to: “By pure dumb luck I’ve gotten where I’m going.” Where Swearin’ used to pummel through their songs, on Fall into the Sun, they bask in what this newfound openness offers.

Swearin’ is Allison Crutchfield, Kyle Gilbride, Jeff Bolt, and Amanda Bartley.

Warm earth noise pop from West Philly.

Born from a spit pact at Queen of Sheba in West Philadelphia, Big Nothing is four idiots completely out of touch with reality. They are hell bent on having a good time and bending the G string up to the note that the B string is playing. They worship Tom Petty and do a terrible job at representing that. Sometimes they want to tour a lot... other times they skip band practice to go to the mall... but no matter what, they will distract you from your meaningless life for twenty minutes - so give em a chance.
