Sadness Revealed: Swervedriver – “Future Ruins”

Swervedriver

“Future Ruins”

Future Ruins

Yeah, Swervedriver has a new album out.  I haven’t been depressed for too long (and I love being depressed), but Swervedriver always does it too me.  They are the best.  Comprised of Adam Franklin- Lead Vocals- Guitars; Jim Hartridge – Vox – Guitars; Mikey Jones – Drums and vibes; Mick Quinn – Bass; or Ben Ellis – Bass, Swervedriver is like Mazzy Star: able to make you feel good about feeling sad.  And “Future Ruins” is such a great song.  I love the term, Easydelic, for their sound, a mix of psychedelic and shoegaze.  Whatever you call them, they have always been one of the best.  And now they’re back with a vengeance.  Thanks be to Calliope, that muse of music.
