Ups and Downsizing is the second album released by Flint, Michigan's The Swellers. It is their follow up to their debut My Everest, and is their first release through Fueled by Ramen. The title is half derived from a quote from the 1998 cult film The Big Lebowski. Vinyl pressings of the album were issued in three colors – "Dirt", "Rust", and "Leaves". 333 of each were produced.[7] From mid August to early October, the band went on a tour of the U.S., with support from Fireworks, Man Overboard, and Transit.[8]
