Philadelphia's cost of living is ludicrously reasonable. For the price of the average month's rent in NYC, you can rent an entire city block and live off nothing but artisanal cheesesteaks for an entire year. Quit buying Starbucks for a week and you could buy a loft like the one Swearin' plays “Dust In The Gold Sack” in for their new video. Replace the instruments of art and joyful atmosphere of their live-in rehearsal space with nothing save a hot plate and a bunch of feral cats plotting to eat you, and it's just like the one you could afford in Toronto.
Swearin's Surfing Strange is out November 5th via Salinas.
