Experimental

Swans- The Great Annihilator

Swans used to play really harsh and noisy industrial music.  The kind that made you want to jam a knife in your ear because it was so brutal and aggressive.  And then they pulled a 180 and started playing experimental post-punk kind of stuff.  The stuff I posted here, is of the latter.  But all that aggression and nastiness... it's still there, albeit a bit more subtle and subdued.  This album in particular is pretty tame compared to some of their other stuff, and if you dig this, make an effort to check out the rest of their discography.  One last piece of news: they recently reformed and are due for a new album this year!

BROMST!!!!

Bromst I had a chance to see Dan Deacon in December when he opened for Girl Talk in Las Veags, and let me tell you, I had never been to a show like his before. Performing on the ground floor with hundreds of sweaty, energetic, crazy fans crowding around him, Deacon performed like now other. His new album entitled Bromst just came out, and I cannot stop listening to it. I had the pleasure of seeing a documentary on the making of this album and it definitely upped my level of respect for this man.  Expect a full review soon, I just wanted to get this out there as soon as possible incase anyone hasn't had a chance to hear it yet.  He is also playing at the Troubador on the 22 of April, and I encourage all who read this to go...and enjoy.
