Just finished listening to this and man . . . I’m exhausted. The Swans have been making epic, noisy, out-there rock for nearly three decades now and I think this is their strongest single album to date. It’s experimental music that never makes you roll your eyes at the makers’ pretension or desperation. It’s drone that’s richly textured and changeable. It’s some of the heaviest music in the world, but you’d never call it metal. Here it is: The Seer by the Swans.
