Originally released in 1995, Ejector Seat Reservation is Swervedriver's third studio album. Although the Oxford band's poorest selling album (the record barely received any promo support due to artist-label issues), Ejectror… is considered one of the group's finest works, a cohesive & focused body work characterized by slower tempos, lush instrumentation (acoustic & electric), and beautifully layered sounds. It's a pleasant mix of shoegaze and dream pop, thick w/ bittersweet melodies & deep grooves: check out "The Birds," "How Does It Feel to Look Like Candy?," "Bring Me The Head of The Fortune Teller," and "Last Day on Earth." 180g audiophile vinyl, includes 4-page booklet and an etched D-side. Includes 4 bonus tracks: "Malestrom," "The Directors Cut Of Your Life," "Just Sometimes," and "Neon Lights Glow."
