Jam of the Week: Swans

Artist: Swans

Album: The Glowing Man

Genre: Post-Rock

Date: 2016

Sound: More dark and noisy goodness from Michael Gira and co

Cool Stuff: If you’ve ever read anything on TRR, you know I’m a big fan of Swans. The band, not the bird, but animal swans are cool too I guess. Anyway, I appreciate any band that approaches music as a true art form, and Swans certainly are daring in their quest. The final album of the trilogy that began with The Seer and will culminate the end of their current lineup, The Glowing Man is just as mind-bending as ever, but might be the easiest to handle of the three. That’s right, Swans isn’t always easy to listen to, but always worthwhile.
