Thanks for checking in again for the Dark Stuff Podcast #19. This is a special one! This episode is dedicated exclusively to the music of Swervedriver and Adam Franklin.

“It’s truly thrilling to hear Franklin amped up again and belting out urgent guitar anthems like opener Seize the Day and Shining Somewhere. The vocals certainly sound more weathered, and the effects rack has most likely been trimmed down a little from his Swervedriver days, but these two immediate standouts are unmistakably the sound of man enjoying his music.”

Bolts of Melody, Franklin’s first proper solo album, more or less begins where we left off, albeit with the volume turned down a little. “Seize the Day” thrashes around like The Posies and Teenage Fanclub never went out of fashion; “Song of Solomon” is a charming tribute to Elliott Smith, and “Sundown” sounds more like the Lemonheads than the Lemonheads do these days.

“I feel the album picks up nicely where Swervedriver left off. It incorporates the many-layered chorus of guitars swirling around the melodies sustained by Adam’s distinct laid-back vocal styles. There is a more 60’s guitar pop feel with Adam wearing influences from garage bands and psychedelia groups.”

Getting to kick out some jams with your idols is any young musician’s dream come true, and for a young musician named Sam Fogarino from a young band called Interpol, that dream recently exploded into reality.

Fogarino met former Swervedriver lead Adam Franklin over dinner a winter ago, and the two must have hit it off, ’cause they done gone and formed a band. “i’ve been a swervedriver fan from the start, still am,” wrote Fogarino on the Setting Suns’ newly inaugurated MySpace page. “i would have killed just to bang a can for adam franklin. now, he makes sense of my melodies, and turns our ideas into a beautiful din. i feel lucky and alive…. and a bit sick from my own sap.”
