RECAP: Florida-born, LA-based, SWIMM pulled out all of the stops to get the crowd to enjoy the smooth 70s vibe, psych, surf pop that they play. Throw in some slick moves that could rival Adam Levine’s “moves like Jagger” hip jiggles, and you’ve got a something that had all the girls swooning. Considering that the guys were jetlagged after a delayed flight from Florida where they played a show the night before, coming straight from the airport to rock MainFest, you gotta appreciate the effort they gave to the main stage attendees.

Halfway through the set, their drummer Adam Winn got up to play some bluesy harmonica during their heartwarming song “Souvenir”.  Beachy guitars set a dreamy mood. My personal favorite, “Belly”, gaves me chills with its 90s vibrations lather with SWIMM’s signature “weightlessness”. Chris Hess’ soft vocals pleasantly floated over an acoustic guitar in “Darkness of Love”, a tune unusually melancholic for the band’s breezy sound. I’d be remiss to mention their spicy cover of Harry Nilsson’s 70s hit “Coconut”. If it were a”beach fest”, I would have bet that all the bikini tops would be lost in the ocean. Too bad I was wearing a sport bra. How unprofessional of me.
