Let's Go Swimming: An Arthur Russell Tribute
NYTIMES "He was a songwriter with a sound that lay somewhere between droning art-song, FM radio pop and country music. He treated songs as permeable, flexible, unfinished entities, letting them drift together, ignoring standard rules about verses and choruses. He has become a hero partly for intellectual reasons, because he didn’t recognize obvious divisions between music for art and music for contemplation. But if he weren’t a great songwriter, no one would be paying attention."
