Drainland is the debut solo studio album by American musician Michael Gira. It was released on June 9, 1995 through Alternative Tentacles record label. Using spare arrangements recorded in August 1994 at musician Bill Rieflin's Seattle home, the album features contributions from Rieflin and Gira's Swans bandmate Jarboe. Jarboe released her 1995 solo studio album Sacrificial Cake as an accompaniment to Drainland. In April 2017, the record was remastered and re-released together with The Great. About Drainland. First Michael Gira solo album, released in 1995 and recorded shortly after Swans The Great Annihilator. Michael says a few words about the record at the Young God Records website: Drainland is a 1995 obscure solo album by me, co-produced by the lovely Bill Rieflin and myself, with musical contributions from Bill and Jarboe. Spare arrangements recorded in Bills living room with the focus on words. Some of this is pretty damn good. Some of it isnt. Ha ha Drainland Q&A. Michael Gira - Drainland 1995.

Given how Gira made Swans such a personal and broad-ranging vehicle for his art over the years, it would have been more than understandable if Drainland, released as a complement to Jarboe's album from the same year Sacrificial Cake, turned out to be Swans redux album as a result. As it happens, it's less of a mixed bag than Jarboe's own musically varied solo efforts, yet it has distinct strengths.

Michael Gira was just two years away from pulling the plug on his band Swans when it released The Great Annihilator in 1995. Well before then, by the late 1980s in fact, it was clear that the shape-shifting experimental outfit had morphed into something quite far removed from the brutishly loud, grinding repetition of its early efforts. The difference was most glaring on its surprisingly faithful covers of Joy Divisions Love Will Tear Us Apart and Blind Faiths Cant Find My Way Home
