Swamp Meat bring a lazy '60s feel to their lighter, floral-patterned, psychedelic-tinged garage. Frayed and a little off, their casual approach wins. You want some harmonica in there? Put some harmonica in there. You want that high note in there, but you're not sure you can hit it? Whatever, it's great. That's seriously what makes it great. If I wanted to listen to perfectly executed vintage pop, I wouldn't. - The Stranger
Swamp Meat, Elephant Graveyard (out now, self-released, swampmeat.bandcamp.com): A new take on ’60s psychedelic pop, Graveyard is all at once expansive and controlled. The first track, “Snake Eat Self,” is reminiscent of some of Hendrix’s trippier soundscapes like “1983 . . . (A Merman I Should Turn to Be),” while the following number, “Katie’s Farm,” is more of an upbeat rendering of the classic-pop mold. - Seattle Weekly
Swamp Meat 7-inch (out now, self-released, swampmeat.bandcamp.com): Swampy is an apt descriptor for this trio’s latest, given their penchant for muddy, lo-fi production values and love of large-room reverb. The B-side, “Filling Up the Void,” is particularly thick and languid, with both a male and female vocal buried in the marshy mix. - Seattle Weekly

Today is a good day to get some new music ;) The Higher Art series was dreamed up to bring positive change to the world through art & magic. With Vol.1 we focused on Seattle’s ongoing homelessness crisis by compiling a benefit album whose ongoing proceeds go to the DESC shelter forever and for always. https://swampmeat.bandcamp.com/album/higher-art-vol-1
Our new album Higher Art Vol.1 has premiered on Impose Magazine along with some goofy pictures to lighten your spirits. It is a benefit for DESC a Seattle homeless shelter and service center. Thanks to Impose for the kind words and all our fans for the love and support! http://bit.ly/2k4ew9O
