Swans is a band from New York, United States, active from 1982 to 1997, reformed in 2010, led by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Michael Gira.

    I really haven't listened to much besides Swans over the past couple of weeks. That said, I still haven't listened to The Glowing Man, despite the fact that it's sitting right beside me.

    I've listened to it something like 4 times so far. In all honesty, I see myself listening solely to TGA + VF + DTIZ all throughout the pointless future, since TGM sucks mothballs so violently there's nothing left to the beast aside from a spurting heap of purple crippled fur. I'm a bit smashed atm so perhaps my analysis is also a tad askew. idk... if u wanna hear a great song, click here => https://youtu.be/Gv3KALmWljI

    Hey, has anyone here heard The Glowing Man yet? Or am I the only one who's not too busy arguing about Gira raping someone or not to actually listen to and enjoy the album?

    The more people Michael loves, the closer the long shadow falls.
