    The Oxford-based alternative rock band Swervedriver continued to develop themselves by implementing different music into their alternative rock and shoegaze sound. Their first album Raise can be categorized as an album with a heavy sound, but also some melodic parts. Their direct approach of the shoegaze sound can be heard by listening to a song like Rave Down. But they're mainly focusing on the noisy and distortion guitar lines. While listening to the classic Son of Mustang Ford you feel the roaring engine run and are drifting back into the American landscape. It's one out of the fascinating 9 tracks, with solid hooks and shiny guitar riffs. Twisted relationships get's their punchline on the epic Deep Seat. The great debut album meant the start of a great career which haven't been finished to this date.


    Swervedriver's heavy days have not yet been gone. Since their reformation in 2008 they're touring all around the world and in 2018 they hit the stage again. There latest release I Wasn't Born to Lose You dated from 2015 and meant their return in the shoegaze revival.

    I Could Sleep For A Thousand Years

    Although he'll be forever known as the leader of the legendary band Swervedriver, the third album by frontman Adam Franklin (and first with his long-time band Bolts of Melody) makes a convincing argument for the band's relevance on its' own accord. Following a successful tour with label mates The Church last summer, Franklin & his bandmates quickly entered into Stratosphere Sound in New York and bashed out 12 gems over the fall and early winter of 2009 and have already made several tracks from this collection a part of their live set.


    Nestled somewhere between the feel of Big Star and Sonic Youth Sleep is a perfect balance of sweet harmonies and breezy guitars, that was prevelant on 2009's critically acclaimed Spent Bullets, but is by far Franklin's most accomplished work yet. All 12 tracks showcase a proper band that has found its niche and is not afraid to let it rip without warning but also is comfortable to just lay back and capture the essence of the moment. This album proves that this is no longer a solo project for Franklin but a proper band that has discovered it's own sound. With this being the first under a full band name, I Could Sleep For A Thousand Years, is a stunning debut.
