The Whispertown 2000: Swim

The Whispertown 2000
Acony Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
The Whispertown 2000 represent everything that is good about music. The band is signed to Gillian Welch’s label Acony records and Swim is a perfect batch of modern alt-folk that has all the pieces such as catchy sing along tracks and the surreal quietness of pure singing. The Whispertown 2000 offer the fresh duel vocals of Morgan Nagler and Vanesa Corbala, which ultimately gives the record a vibrant and quality mix which does the genre proud!

Key Track: "Old Times"

Band With Similar Fire: Jenny Lewis
