The Swimmer CD/CDROM
Western Vinyl, 2006
Packaged in a beautiful digipack, The Swimmer is the Tren Brothers’ contribution to Western Vinyl’s portrait series. Previous contributors have included Bonnie Prince Billy, Appendix Out, Papa M, Kohn, and Anomoanon. For The Swimmer the Tren Brothers
created four musical selections and four quicktime videos, one to accompany each audio track.
The music swoons with Jim White’s perfectly expressive and sensual drumming and Mick Turner’s signature guitar style. As anyone familiar with their work knows, Jim’s unique drumming is the perfect compliment to Mick Turner’s moody swirls of guitar and melodica. Togther they’ve created a beautiful portrait of a character known only as The Swimmer.
