Torrent Description

Andy Swan is a man of many names — Detective Kalita, The Michael Parks and, uh, Andy Swan — but he’s always done one thing very well: toe the lines between tender-hearted vulnerability, self-deprecating wit and barely concealed contempt, kind of like Will Oldham stripped of the inscrutability (and the scary beard). Though he calls Toronto home, with Ottawa, Swan pays tribute to the city that houses his label and many of his best friends — including Jim Bryson, Andrew Vincent, The Acorn’s Rolf Klausener and Kelp Records head Jon Barlett — all of whom join in to transform Swan’s solitary serenades into spirited group hoedowns. As such, the torn ’n’ frayed indie-rock that defined Swan’s past work has been displaced by a more rustic presentation that provides suitably stark settings for his stories of dead Rolling Stones, starfuckers and the loneliness of living in the city: “you and your lawyers in your penthouse apartments / and me in my one-room shack,” he sings to an ex who’s since traded up, “it’s a matter of fact how you got the diamonds / and I got the shaft.” But Ottawa is ultimately a testament to making the most of your limited means: when Swan asks “Can I Pay You in Sunshine?” — a finger-pickin’ charmer that sounds like it was lassoed in from The Byrds’ Sweetheart of the Rodeo — you know that the man is good for it.

Andy “Swanny” Swan leads the Toronto pop outfit The Michael Parks (formerly Detective Kalita), but even this prolific band can't keep up with his songwriting output.

In late 2006, Andy took a brand new batch of songs to Ottawa to record his second album. It turned out decidedly country, and laid to 2" tape sounds as if it was made decades ago when country met rock. The shadows of Kris Kristofferson, Shotgun Willie and George Jones loom large throughout.

With Rolf Klausener (The Acorn) on bass, John J. Higney Jr. (Two Minute Miracles) on guitar and Jon Bartlett (Rhume) on drums, Andy has crafted a brilliantly subtle album, where his simple, honest lyrics and vulnerable tenor voice get to shine in the spotlight. Other guests include Jim Bryson, Dave Draves, Andrew Vincent, Jake Bryce (Recoilers), and Kyla Dowden (duet singer on “Maybe It’s Love”), this amazing local 20-year old Joan Baez-a-like we found on MySpace.

Ottawa is the best thing Swanny has ever done. It effortlessly reels in its listeners and has you humming its songs for days on end. “Can I Pay You With Sunshine?” is the new “Snowbird.”

Andy Swan is a bit of a shy guy. He hid behind the moniker of Detective Kalita for a while, but that project is now known as the Michael Parks. Well, no matter the name, the consistent thing was the shocking effortlessness with which Andy Swan made little pop masterpieces. Now, flying solo under his own name for the first time, though backed up by Ottawa locals Jon Bartlett (of Rhume), Rolf Klausener (of the Acorn) and John Higney, Swan does something a little different but no less magical. If you don’t notice it with the magical pedal steel work of Higney, then you’ll get it through song titles like “You Got the Diamonds (I Got the Shaft).” Yes, there’s a country and folk inflection to the songs here but it’s just enough to keep the pop interesting and the country from being too corny. Indeed, pop perfection is near achieved on songs like “The Truth About Thieves” and “Can I Pay You With Sunshine?” Swan’s unerring ear for light and deceptively simple melody thrives no matter what the genre and, finally laying himself bare, he hopefully won’t be a secret too much longer.

Why Ottawa?
Swan: It’s not because of the content at all but there was some family engagements that sort of brought me into Ottawa and I had this idea of calling up my friends in Ottawa and seeing if they were up for trying to record an album based around these family events. It’s more of a time capsule, like capturing that moment, and it’s also called Andy Swan’s Ottawa, so it’s not really about Ottawa but the people I know here.

How did you capture such a spontaneous feel?
Most of the album was recorded live, so that simplifies things in a way if you can actually pull it off. You’re a little more lenient about imperfections and the way you grow to like them. To me, this is all part of the charm, as everything I’ve ever done in the studio was very rarely rehearsed and there just seems to be a sort of spark. Also, they’re pretty simple songs, or a lot of the songs are a couple of chords. I spent a lot of time trying to get the words. For me, that was the real focus, or the real challenge. (Kelp)
