Black Swans

Occasion For Song
Sealed 2013 Record Store Day 2LP Gatefold. “Occasion For Song, The Fifth Album By The Black Swans, Is Haunted By Absence, From Its Cover Art Depicting A Diving Board Over A Swimming Pool On The Front, And Late Violinist Noel Sayre's Headstone On The Back (He Drowned In 2008), To Its 12 Songs. As An Album, It Owns The Truth Of That Absence; It Looks Unflinchingly At Memory, Existential Questions, Empty Space, And Grief, And Ultimately Accepts It All. Founders, Vocalist Guitarist Jerry Decicca And Bassist/Pianist Canaan Faulkner, Are Augmented Here By Four Others On Banjo, Guitar, B-3, And Percussion. Decicca's Songs Have Always Been Steeped In The Kinds Of Subjective Truth That We Find In History, Movies, Literature, And Music. He Uses Allusion, Metaphor, And History To Weave His Own Hybrid Mythology; None Of His Songs Feel Strictly Confessional -- Even If They Are -- Which Is Part Of What Makes The Black Swans' Sparse Americana So Compelling.” – Thom Jurek, AMG
