It’s easy to get sucked into Swervedriver’s sweeping, panoramic guitar rock. On Mezcal Head, the Oxford quartet creates such a vivid feeling of driving through the desert at night that you can almost see the cactuses rushing by. It’s an exhilarating and sometimes turbulent joyride, but it’s always worth it. Indispensable tracks such as “Duel” and “Last Train to Satansville” spiral with ethereal guitars and propulsive rhythms, while singer Adam Franklin’s hoarse voice gives the music a hopeless romanticism and restlessness. This is some of the best and most underrated rock music of the ’90s
