Courtesy of Penetration Inc, today's Swag Tuesday giftie is Beautiful Mess, the ninth studio album from Swing Out Sister, which is available nationwide today.
There are few artists in the pop music landscape who manage to stand the test of time while remaining completely unique and relevant. Swing Out Sister has managed to do this over their remarkable 20-plus year career and as a result has built a devoted international fan base. On May 19, 2009, Shanachie Entertainment will release Swing Out Sister’s highly anticipated ninth studio album, Beautiful Mess, showcasing the band’s ability to create fresh cinematic sound-scapes with their sophisticated, intimate and jazz/Latin tinged pop and surprise-filled arrangements that pay homage to the great soul tradition. Fronted by the stunning vocalist and fashionista Corinne Drewery and keyboardist Andy Connell, Swing Out Sister celebrates the eclectic cultural mix of the UK’s constantly changing music scene on Beautiful Mess. With a clever mix of jazz fusion, hip hop hooks, sixties pop, 70’s R&B/funk and free flowing Latin groves, Swing Out Sister concocts the ultimate Beautiful Mess over a twelve track recording that gives a glimpse into the minds of two creative geniuses who never tire of finding new ways to make us dream through their music.We have five copies of Beautiful Mess to give away.
