Rarefaction, Svec’s second solo release, comes timed perfectly as the bitter winter blows into Minneapolis. If there was something with which to melt the snow drifts away, a thousand apartments singing along with him might just do the trick.
Svec himself is a kind of approachable anomaly whose intellect blends beautifully with his art. He is currently pursuing his master’s in audiology, the study of hearing and hearing loss, while teaching biology on the side. Listening to his heart-wrought tales infused with a vocal range that very few men can pull off, I think it lucky to have a local artist with such a thorough appreciation of sound.
In the past I have waxed rhapsodic about Svec’s talents, and if you haven’t already heard his first release Enemy Swimmer, you need to. Immediately. (Click the link!) Then, go catch the CD release party for Rarefaction at the Kitty Kat Klub in Dinkytown, January 29th. See you there.
