Anyone have thoughts on Annie Clark’s chanting?
What do you think she’s saying?


Sportsguyy18 says:

Has a song ever been so good that you started laughing hysterically, or
maybe it’s because it’s 5 in the morning. The wait for this album is going
to kill me.

James Gaffney says:

To everyone who likes this – the rest are pussies anyway: don’t download it
illegaly, but buy it. They have earned it!

Blackbullnova69 says:

Sort of reminds me of Primus…

Jeremy Biscay-Evans says:

After hearing Oxygen, you do get this sense that this album is leaning in a
more groovier direction, especially with the extra use of guitars. This
band has been pretty focused on less – relying on guitars to steer the song
direction. I feel that they’re starting to bring it back a bit, and it
excites me.

AJtheory says:

If you ever see SWANS live, you might see M. Gira transform into a churning
burning ball of fire, throwing off sparks and flares. Your cell phone will
not work

cthulhugamete says:

Oh no wonder I didn’t recognize this when I saw them 2 days ago. It’s new.
Between the Seer and the Seer tour which I saw last year, when did they
have the time? Whatever. I’m just glad they’re back.
