The All-Conquering Return Of Swans


With a terrific new double album, ‘The Seer’, which many are claiming is Swans’ best; Michael Gira’s veteran band has cemented a second coming they began a few years ago. ‘Mother Of The World’ is the abrasive first single and this week’s favourite track in our loop.

The Brits gets this week’s strongest entries with the likes of young electronic wizard Blawan leading a pack that also includes tracks by King Midas Sound singer Roger Robinson and experimental musician Anna Meredith.
