Swans – “Mother Of The World”
Later this month, reconstituted violent-postpunk boundary-smashers Swans will release The Seer, their absolute monster of a double album. We’ve already heard a 10-minute edit of their 23-minute album opener “The Apostate,” which isn’t even the longest song on the album. And now, NPR has a stream of the elemental 10-minute clanger “Mother Of The World.” Even when it finally quiets down, it’s absolutely unrelenting, and you can listen to it here.
The Seer is out 8/28 on Young God.
