SETH SWIRSKY – SONGS FROM THE GREEN COUCH
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE ALBUM PREMIERE
Prolific indie-pop musician/author/producer Seth Swirsky (who has worked with and written #1 hits for the likes of Taylor Dayne, Tina Turner, Celine Dion, Air Supply, Smokey Robinson, Olivia Newton-John, and more) is back with a brand new solo album entitled Songs From The Green Couch, out tomorrow April 8 via Lolipop Records). The record, which covers sounds from psyched-out garage-rock to indie-rock sunshine, was engineered by Rob Campanella of Brian Jonestown Massacre and features instrumentation by members of The Triptides.
Speaking on the album, Seth wrote the following:
“We all have a ‘safe space’ — a place where we can go and escape from the world. The green couch in my art room in my house is such a space. It was there where most of the songs on this album were written, either on guitar or with lyrics—thus, the title, Songs From The Green Couch.
Rob Campanella, of Brian Jonestown Massacre — who engineered the album— introduced me to two guys in The Triptides: bassist Glenn Brigman and drummer Brendan Peleo-Lazar. The three of us (me on most guitars, pianos and mellotrons) became the core of the entire record. I sang all vocals and arranged the live strings. L.A. musicians, Kirk Hellie and Fernando Perdomo contributed their talents on some songs as well. But, as I said, the core was myself and the Triptides, which added a certain ‘toughness’ to my natural pop sensibilities.
The record was a two year process: I started writing and recording the record at the beginning of a serious new relationship I was having — it continued during a very painful breakup. Thus, the album oscillates between many hi’s and lo’s for me personally, which are reflected in the lyrics.”
Aside from his solo ventures, Seth is also the founding member of the popular retro-pop, indie band, The Red Button, who have scored “The Coolest Song in the World This Week” 4 times on Little Steven’s Underground Garage Sirius radio show. He also helmed a multi-award-winning documentary, Beatles Stories, exhibiting his love for music even further.
