The four-piece Los Angeles indie group Louden Swain makes music best described as a combo platter of classic, alternative and hard rock. That makes for a sound both loud and approachable, one that can blow your hair back even as it touches your heart.
Fronted by lead singer and actor Rob Benedict, Louden Swain also includes bassist Mike Borja, lead guitarist Billy Moran and drummer Stephen Norton. The band is readying its fourth full-length recording – Eskimo, set to be issued in January 2012 on their own 3 Car Wreckords label.
Each new album has arrived brimming with gumption and sparky intellect, leading to a lot of early buzz: "The LA pop rock band has a polished sound reminiscent of Marvelous 3," says Kayley Thomas of Pop Matters, "one that crackles and sparks with wit, humor, and a powerful mix of intellectual and musical playfulness and maturity. Bursting with energy and whimsy."
