A little bit of R.E.M. jangle combined with a touch Morrissey-esque vocals give Wake by Emmet Swimming unique flavors.

Author & Special Guests

To help us revisit the 1995 album Wake by Emmet Swimming, we‚Äôre joined by Suburban Metal Dad cartoonist and Slayer author DX Ferris. A little bit of R.E.M. jangle combined with a touch Morrissey-esque vocals give this mid-90s album flavors not heard on other releases around this time. We dive into the players, the history and more to determine if Wake swims or sinks.

Bonus: you can listen to the 1995 Epic Records re-release of the album on Spotify, and you can also check out the original 1994 original running order as put together by DX Ferris
