The Bells Ep is a pop album born of a folk conception harboring an avant-garde influence. It yields six different incarnations of pop music througout it's thirty minute lifespan, each with their own flavor. From the grandiose opening track 'Bells', to the bossanova inspired 'Tag, you're it', to the solitary guitar plucking on 'Brooklyn Blues', Ricci Swift's visions are unified through the melodies he's created. As equally unique as the music is the albums packaging which boasts a velvet lining, wax seel, and polaroid picture making each copy a truly personal experience. The CD's good looks and great sound provide this Oregon native with a solid first endeavor. 'Ricci Swift, a Salem resident turned Portlander, is living the dream. His new EP, Bells, is a young artist's labor of love. Filled with acoustic guitar and throaty lyrics about love and growing up, Swift's songs blend pop and sentiment.' - Willamette Week, 06/07/06.
