Beautiful Swimmers have revealed details of their debut album, Son, due out July 2nd. The DC-based pairing of Andrew Field-Pickering and Ari Goldman have recorded together since 2008. In that time they've put out a string of original records and remixes that combine elements of house, boogie, dub and disco. Field-Pickering has also carved a sideline as Maxmillion Dunbar, releasing an album of kaleidoscopic house called House Of Woo earlier this year. The album features a couple of previously released tracks-2009's "Swimmers Groove" and 2010's "Big Coast"-alongside a clutch of new songs which the duo say broaden the Swimmers' musical palette.
