LA veterans Failure are unspectacular practitioners of rock that hovers in the nexus between shoegaze and psychedelia. Honestly, these workmanlike stalwarts should be supporting Swervedriver rather than the other way around. After spending the first half of the ’90s as one of Creation Records’ greatest and hardest-rocking acts (essentially a UK counterpart to Hüsker Dü and Dinosaur Jr.), Swervedriver continued to make thrilling records, although not as lofty as their early EPs and first two LPs. Lead singer/guitarist Adam Franklin’s knack for crafting melodies that soar and trigger tears remains intact even throughout Swervedriver’s last two somewhat mellower albums, I Wasn’t Born to Lose You and Future Ruins. These blokes still hit that sweet spot between power and vulnerability more often than not.
