Swervedriver - Winter Depths (MP3)

Fifteen years after the release of their last album, shoegaze legends Swervedriver announced the end of their hiatus with plans for a new LP, and earlier this year, we saw the glorious results on I Wasn't Born to Lose You. Fans were delighted to hear that in all that time, the UK group hadn't lost their knack for densely layered psych-rock that was always a bit louder than their peers. Thankfully, the reunion is no flash in the pan. Just five months after the new album hit the shelves, they've released another new song as part of Adult Swim Singles 2015. Though unseasonably named "Winter Song" is a welcome breeze of gauzy guitars, wistful melodies and 90's nostalgia on these last hot days of summer. Cool down with today's featured song and look for more great music - from Shabazz Palaces, Peaches, Danny Brown, Owen Pallett, Cherry Glazzer, and many others - on this free online series .
