One of my most anticipated releases of this year would obviously be Swans upcoming record, The Seer (August 28th). Pitchfork is streaming an exclusive ten minute excerpt of the twenty-three minute closing track “The Apostate”. Layers and layers of sliding guitars, bells, synths and other sounds combined with Michael Gira’s insanity ridden yelling (which is in a higher pitch than normal surprisingly) creates a huge acid trip for the ears. I can’t sit here and describe it in detail at the moment because I am way to immersed in it. Just listen now!
