FUCK YEAH: Swans - The Seer Returns [MP3]

The new Swans album is upon us. In the press release, Michael Gira stated "The Seer took 30 years to make. It’s the culmination of every previous Swans album as well as any other music I’ve ever made, been involved in or imagined. But it’s unfinished, like the songs themselves. It’s one frame in a reel. The frames blur, blend and will eventually fade." This is what makes the album so cathartic. It's noisy, brutal and intimate, and I wouldn't want it another way. Enjoy.
