The thick guitar rave-ups plastered all over Swervedriver’s 1991 album, Raise, are well-suited to the ever-messy Idolator flophouse. Since Raise has fallen out of print, we’d like to offer up two of its best tracks–the charged “Son Of Mustang Ford” was the song that caught Creation Records head Alan McGee’s ear, and the massive, gorgeous guitars on “Rave Down” are bliss-inducing.
