Reel to Real is a promo-only EP from Raise which features "Sandblasted," their third U.K. single. "Jesus" is a decent, drums-heavy version of the Velvet Underground tune. "Scrawl and Scream" is a slower, slightly twangy version of Rave Down's "Afterglow" with different lyrics; it's not as effective as its predecessor. The acoustic-driven "Hands," however, is another dandy in Swervedriver's arsenal of "on a motorbike in the middle of nowhere" epics.
