 New Music: Swans   Mother of the World

Micheal Gira of Swans said that his latest album The Seer is a “culmination of every previous Swans album as well as any other music I’ve ever made, been involved in or imagined.” Keep that in mind as you listen to the hypnotic 10 minute song “Mother of the World”, now streaming at NPR.

The Seer, which features Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O, Low’s Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, Akron/Family and more,  is out August 28th via Young God records, and you can pre-order the 2CD/3LP opus here.
