Default met the yellow swans tonight

went to the ecstatic yod in Northampton mass tonight (thurston moores little record store hang out) and got to see the yellow swans play.. they were fantastic! ended up talking with Gabe for a bit afterwards about his equipment, what he uses, how he learned guitar, hit a wall and decided to make noise.. super nice guy, then we taked a biut about how great and supportive the music scene is a around this area (i'm new here so he gave me a good heads up on who to see/meet, says he loves it here).

Anyway.. i have not heard much from them before and was wondering what anyone could recommend as far as records to purchase from them? i want to go back to the store tomorrow and pick some of their stuff up.

the store itself is really cool too.. the walls are covered in records, what looks like about 10,000 LPs.. thurstons collection. He's got probably about 200 sun ra records!! definately a cool ass place..

Yellow Swans - At All Ends (2007)

On their second album for Load, Gabriel Mindel Saloman and Pete Swanson again make a lot of righteously gloomy noise soundscapes for the masses they wouldn't have it any other way, of course. With Daniel Voss again providing engineering help while Marcelo Spina oversees production, Yellow Swans begin the album with the title track, a slow swell of a throbbing dark rhythm the bedrock for a series of overlaid drones and feedback wails, Swanson's guitar turning slowly into a triumphant crescendo somewhere between a minimal sitar piece and pure overload. It's perhaps the most straightforwardly rock thing the band's recorded in some time but even then it's not quite normal, and a good thing too. From there much of the album seems to take on a desert theme, at least due to three successive song titles "Stretch the Sands," "Our Oases," "Mass Mirage." Alliteration and assonance aside, all three find Swanson fully embraces spacerock dramatics filtered through the vast soundscapes created by the likes of Flying Saucer Attack, sheets of feedback howl and moan turning into something utterly transcendent, with "Our Oases" the most spectacular example even at being the shortest in length. "Endlessly Making an End of Things" concludes the album in a more astrigent fashion initially, though like the opener more and more sound builds on it while mournful wordless vocals snake through the mix in counterpoint as distant siren songs.
