To celebrate the triumphant return of the mighty SWERVEDRIVER to both Australian shores and Tym records I am very pleased to announce this limited edition tour split 33 RPM 7" out exclusively on Tym records.
Swervedriver need no introduction to the world and especially to supporters of Tym records. I was fortunate enough to release SWD's first new song in 15 years back in late 2013 (TYM014) for their Australian RAISE tour with a song that ended up, in a re-recorded version, on the new album I Wasn't Born to Loose You which is an amazing record. I have also released Adam Franklin's Bolts Of Melody (TYM025) on 12" vinyl in late 2014 so the time was right to work with these guys again.
The song on their side is Winter Depths and has been lovingly mastered for vinyl for the first time. It's six and half minutes of glorious classic psych pop with Adam's beautiful vocals over quintessential, perfect Swervedriver.
Grinding Eyes have also graced Tym records before and are playing shows with SWD on this Australian tour. They're a psych garage/rock band from Sydney who released their vinyl debut on Tym records (TYM037) back in late 2015 and are currently recording their inaugural long player due out this year.
Their contribution to this disc is a wonderful offering of psych garage in the form of At Night. Recorded by Owen from the Straight Arrows and mixed by Jim Diamond of the Dirtbombs this is four minutes of fuzz laden rock.
TYM045 will be available online from this Friday, 17th of June and then on merch stands on this Swervedriver tour from the 22nd.
