A Trip to Marineville. Swell Maps' debut album was a scattershot affair, ranging from blistering three-chord punk to free-form noise experiments, that was intriguing, yet frequently incoherent.

Swell Maps didn’t give two bits of a flying about how this album comes off to people; they just had their absolute fun with it and that enthusiasm and complete exuberance are shining and glowing and dragging you in one song at a time. I cannot say that the aforementioned officer Daniels changed and turned my life around, because I already was on a correctional path towards being better, but he certainly secured my determination to become someone better. And I tried my hardest  . I wouldn’t want to relive that, but I like remembering. And A Trip to Marineville helps that like nothing else.
