Monday's Long Songs

Swans-Mastermind Michael Gira announced during the release of the latest Swans album Leaving Meaning that the band will not further exist with a fixed line-up of members. So this album might be the first solo album by him under the trademark of Swans. Gira is a shaman that brought us true dark and apocalyptic sounds during the year and often focusing power, death, religion and sex in his songs. The more I was surprised when I listened to his new album after a few years of absence. There is still a timber mood in their songs and The Hanging Man is an blues based on heavy drums and soft acoustic guitars to company a sinner walking through the desert. At the end the sun shines a little brighter. A great album for sure
