Giving The Table A Name - Epiglottis (Leak)

from Love American Skin by Various Artists



Giving The Table A Name is powered by a single individual, Jeff Allyn Szwast, who writes and records all the ingredients. Originating in Athens, Ga., the project has been based out of Brooklyn, NY since 2002.

"It’s very clear something great is happening here, what it is we may never know, but while there is still air to breathe, let’s enjoy this one. It may not last and if there is a dry eye in the crowd when it’s over, then surely dehydration is the only logical excuse." -

"Jeff Allyn Szwast's avant-indie rock project Giving The Table A Name specializes in angular guitar progressions punctuated by thumping, crashing percussion, and vocals leaning towards the slithering and cerebral side." - The Deli Magazine

"It’s rare when a musician personally crafts every piece of his/her art... Jeff is one of those rare creators that has his hands on every aspect of his music." - The New LoFi

"Comfortable, familiar, and engaging… Giving the Table a Name delivers thoughtful and poetic lyrics, full of dark symbolism and covert psychological exploration… the production quality is skilful and the songs certainly provide plenty of ambiance on which effortless indulging can ensue." - Moon Music Reviews
