The Black Swans recently made Uprooted Music Revue’s Favorite 25 Recordings of 2012 (So Far) for Occasion for Song (an album that isn’t even out until 7/31). This is a testimony to the power of the record.

Chris Mateer – the phenomenal fellow behind the list – is also conducting an interview with frontman Jerry DeCicca. The interview will appear via both Uprooted Music Revue and No Depression.

Also, check out that amazing new Black Swans press photo. Jerry’s alter-ego is Dr. Silverfoot – a balloon sculptor.
