Swans – The Seer

SKU: 5051083079044 Categories: ,

<h3> Title : Swans – The Seer Format : Vinyl Record Label : Young God Records Catalogue Number : STUMM363

Bar code : 5051083079044 <h3/>

The Seer is the twelfth studio Vinyl Record by American experimental rock band Swans and was released on August 28, 2012 by Gira’s own record label Young God Records. Producer and frontman Michael Girafunded the recording of the album with the sales of We Rose from Your Bed with the Sun in Our Head.

While the previous studio album My Father Will Guide Me up a Rope to the Sky was seen as a cross between Gira’s solo project Angels of Light and late Swans, The Seer strayed away from Angels of Light’s more accessible songs and lyricism, focusing more around sonic landscapes. The album features a variety of instrumentation and guest musicians, including the post-punk band Yeah Yeah Yeahs vocalistKaren O and former Swans member Jarboe. The album is noteworthy due to its extended song lengths, especially its over thirty minute title track, as well as its unrelenting droning noise experimentation. The album garnered critical acclaim from mainstream publications and appeared in publications’ best of the year album lists.
