Reseña de álbum

Vocalist/guitarist and songwriter Dan Glendining often sounds like Sting doing his best Thom Yorke impression on Headswim's second full-length release Despite Yourself. Released in 1997, this recording from the Glendining-led Essex, England outfit fortunately boasts enough strong individual material to prevent the record from being a mere acknowledgement of trendy influences. Glendining used Despite Yourself at least partly to express his sorrow over the death of his brother Matthew in 1994, and the results are gentle, musical, and in some cases touching. Joining Glendining on this recording is the long-time Headswim lineup of bassist Clovis Taylor, drummer Tom Glendining, and keyboard player Nick Watts. Highlights include the desperate and yearning "Clinging to the Wreckage" and "Holy Ghost," but the best track might be the Radiohead-inspired "Better Made," with its sprawling, emotive chorus and tremolo guitar accompaniment that echoes some of The Bends' finer moments. Too derivative for lofty praise or emphatic recommendation, Despite Yourself is an exquisite exercise in catharsis and musical tribute nonetheless.

It had videos and audio tracks. They are up there with NIN and Stabbing Westward in my mind. Don't miss out just because they didn't get mainstream label backing.

headswim despite yourself

give this a go, i liked it the moment i heard it. Dont mind the moody cover. It says more about the record company marketing than the recording.

The new outfit immediately began writing and recording, completing two EPs, Tense Nervous Head and Moment of Union, during their first year together. These early recordings had a grungy, American rock feel most reminiscent...
