Over the years my love of Dappled Cities has been well-documented on A Reminder so when I learned Dappled Tim was putting out a solo EP I was pretty excited. I’ve always loved the drama in Tim’s voice and he has a knack for enjoyably, slightly unorthodox (at times) arrangements.
His first solo outing, under the moniker Swimwear is a four song EP called The Kissing Machine. Both names are pretty indicative of the music found on the EP: it’s all bright sunshine and unbridled enthusiasm. While Swimwear’s homeland of Australia may be heading into “winter” here in North America the sun is finally out again and The Kissing Machine is a pretty great accompaniment.
