The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Swervedriver

I am forever running late. While it may not be a part of my charm, I would refer you to the old saying about better late than never. In any case, after probably way too much thought, I finally settled upon my favorite 50 records from the year that was 2015. I'm also mixing it up a little this year, y'all. Instead of ranking every record, I'm giving you my picks in alphabetical order, saving my number one, very favorite record of the year for last. So sit back, relax, and refresh your memory of last year's best with a group of records that I hope will tickle your fancy.

Who: Swervedriver

What: I Wasn't Born to Lose You

When: March 2015

Where: Cobraside

Why: Many a year has come and gone since those legends of Swervedriver last released a long player. But the sound remains much the same, with plenty of breathless heaven on Earth vocals, buzz saw drones, and shimmering waves of melodious noise. Older, wiser, and as good as ever.  

My very favorite jam: "Autodidact" and "Setting Sun" and "English Subtitles" and "I Wonder?"
