Obsession of the Week: The Whispertown 2000’s “Swim”

My obsession for the week has to be The Whispertown 2000’s new album Swim, which is out today on Acony Records. The band hails from Los Angeles and has built a devout following here. With this album, they appear poised to reach the next level with their very charming indie folk thats tinged with a little blues.

The new album features guests Jenny Lewis and Gillian Welch. This is an album you will most likely treasure and a band you will want to keep all to yourself. They play a free instore / record release show at Amoeba today.

Here is a song from the album: Ebb and Flow

Do you know which song(s) Jenny Lewis is on? I’ve been listening to this for weeks (LOVE!), and I had no idea. I know she sings in a couple songs from their first album, though.

Nevermind, my physical copy arrived today, and the liner notes say she provides vocals on “Atlantis,” as does Gillian Welch.
