Amoeba Review

06/15/2016

Swans frontman Michael Gira announced that their 14th studio album, The Glowing Man, is the last album release with the current line-up (Michael Gira -- vocals, electric and acoustic guitar; Norman Westberg – electric guitar, vocals; Kristof Hahn – lap steel guitar, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, vocals; Phil Puleo – drums, dulcimer, knocks, vocals; Christopher Pravdica – bass guitar, vocals; Thor Harris – percussion, vibes, bells, dulcimer; Bill Rieflin – drums, piano, synth, Mellotron, bass guitar, electric guitar, vocals). Gira will continue to make music under the name Swans, but with a revolving cast of collaborators, which will undoubtedly affect the sound that they’ve cultivated since their reformation in 2010. Their fourth album since reuniting, The Glowing Man builds upon their increasingly complex and rich sound. This intense two-hour work is a hefty endeavor for both band and listener, as slow-building themes swell and ebb taking us on a chaotic tour of emotions and musical styles. While their music is at times a challenge, the payoff is high. Could this be experimental rock’s answer to Joyce’s Finnegans Wake? This 3 LP set Includes digital download card.
