The Hive Dwellers

“Lynch the Swan” 7″

Since forming back in 2009, the Hive Dwellers, led by the inimitable Calvin Johnson of Beat Happening fame, have kept a pretty light schedule, only finding the time to release a few songs—first the “Get In” 12″ from back in 2010, and now a 7″ featuring the track “Lynch the Swan,” which is a delectable bit of oddball pop like only Johnson is capable of producing. There is no other artist alive who sounds quite so stately while singing a line that ends with the phrase “choke the chicken.” Watch a 2009 performance of the song below, and buy the record here.
