Lush. Dreamy. Mesmerizing. Groovy. Catchy. Gorgeous: these are some words New Yorkers and Berliners have used to describe Anton Sword''s new CD, "A Sentimental Education."
"Should you have forgotten what a beautiful ballad is or what a finely crafted good pop song sounds like, Anton Sword has ''a sentimental education'' ready for you: 11 wonderfully produced songs of melancholy, love and the fleetingness of human existence...dark but tender like Andy Partridge or Martin Newell."
--Roman Elsener, in The Roman Games Diary
"Would it be cool if Bryan Ferry, Brian Eno and Burt Bacharach were melted together, reborn, and adopted by a 21st-century two-headed parent--Radiohead and Portishead? If you think so, you should check out Anton Sword."
--NYC music critic Hitchcock Roach.
One day when he was a child in New York City Anton put his ear against a speaker in a dark apartment on the west side and went into a trance. He had a long dream. When he woke up twenty years later his heart was permanently broken, but in a good way. Trying to make a movie out of the turbulence in his mind, he found himself writing songs instead, songs described by some as sounding like a session of great sex during psychoanalysis.
Anton decided to make some CDs to get it all out of his system, and then go back to sleep. "A Sentimental Education" is the first, and is now available here at CDBaby.
Sometimes Anton takes himself a little too seriously, but his melodies are beautiful and his beats cool, so forgive him. Girls are usually more enamored of his tunes than boys, but the boys are slowly being won over.
Anton Sword is also half the duo J.C. & Anphibius, who play their own unique brand of ''Uneasy Listening Music.'' You can also check out their two CDs here at CDBaby.
Anton has toured Europe eight times. He currently divides his time between New York City and Berlin.
