Be kind to yourself, and get this album.
It's fucking brilliant.

Got the new one today, and thought I'd just put it on for a bit, casual first listen, background kinda thing. Impossible, already on the third replay, start to finish.
Love it, these days it doesn't happen very often that I get hooked on a new album right away.

i think they're just such an intriguing band

pavementtune 05-13-2014 05:47 AM

Yea, they sure are.
And god damn, with 'Screen Shot' as a starter it's on the bestopeningtracksonanyalbum list. It's on all lists.

Calling it now, greatest album of 2014.

Been cranking it pretty hard lately and just watched the Swans doco on p4k too to max out my love factor for this band. It's really pretty crazy just how much attention they've gotten since reuniting for such a challenging band. A+

related note: anyone here big on Angels Of Light?

Indeed! I had previously said that about the new Triptykon just a couple weeks ago. But this...it's just incredible.

I've only recently decided to give them a listen, but still have yet to. Any suggestions on where to start? (or just chronologically?)

Dude they're experimental you just don't "get it". Song dynamics and pattern variations are overrated. So are vocal melodies. Its genius, they take a 15 secs pattern and stretch it for 10 mins for no good reason! "Hey guys I have this three notes repeating pattern" "cool, we'll put a drum beat to it, add a few sounds for texture, i'll sing some random shit over it in one never changing repetitive chant and we'll play play it for 15 mins, now that takes care of song #2, alright anybody else got something?"

I like that they thought their repetitive shit warranted a 2 hours record though. Not self indulgent or anything. I also like that this half assedness carried over to the sleeve design too.
"K guys i'm done with the cover art, what do you think?"
"Wait did you just spend 30 secs in photoshop designing this?"
"yep"
"Sweet"

Really I wasn't gonna say anything and keep my negativity to myself, but trostki did so why not try a bandwagon. Next thing you know this thread would have ended up being rated as having a positive feel anyway and we can't have that.

I enjoy all their records but We Are Him is to me the standout.



"For the promise of water i'll walk on my knees" is pretty much the quintissential Gira lyric.
