"Single Review - Dale Goodridge - Swimming After Dark"

So, someone follows you on Twitter, meh. But if his bio includes the phrase "Purveyor of Fine Music, Potions and Elixirs!" you suddenly feel like you've made a friend. Thus, the stalking begins. Turns out this Dale Goodridge dude's an Australian singer-songwriter who's just released a single by the name of 'Swimming After Dark' and it's pretty catchy.
Listening into it, the heavy, Radiohead-like feel is quite alluring. The only negative things I'd say are that the drums and lead vocals can at times sound pretty laboured, and that I think I disagree with the decision to have the lead vocal line doubled-up for a lot of it. However, as a solo effort it ain't half bad. I particularly like the harmonies in the interlude, no matter how random an interruption it seems a first.
There is definitely an inspiring dedication to his craft going on with this guy, and some very clean recordings of guitar, bass (beautiful tone) and vocals too, so I'm glad I checked him out because this song is one of a multitude that are worth a listen.

Music Like This:

Radiohead - the vocals and organ'y bits are reminiscent of some of the stuff on In Rainbows.

Gotye - I don't know why exactly, but I'm feeling the experimental bit in the middle, and the brass and stuff.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds - similar principle only with a band. Kinda similar sound too, if you changed the singer.

"Track Of The Day - Dale Goodridge - CRASH"

Todays Track Of The Day is from Dale Goodridge, a purveyor of everything good about the 60's rock and roll scene, transferred to the modern day and made accessible. ‘Crash’ is a great track and perfect to kick off a relaxing weekend! - The View From The Music

"Up To You Review"

Lots of cool creative energy in this song. Not the typical type love song. You have to listen at least twice to pick up all the nuance in the rhythm and lyrics. Has an interesting Pink Floyd type flavor, but really laid back tempo and rhythm. Almost like a folk acoustic song but with steel guitars. Very cool sound! - Slice The Pie

Inspired by the intricately-recorded, great and powerful rock albums of the ‘60s and ‘70s, Dale crafts each of his original songs in a studio he built by hand in Melbourne, Australia. By playing every instrument himself, he constructs new music that resonates with personal and universal significance.

Dale continues to develop as a strong solo artist and producer, thriving on the challenge of engineering recordings that sound like they have been created by a multi-piece band and reflect his love for creating new music.
