POST-ROCK
Swans – To Be Kind

When one of my most favored bands follows up their finest hour with two even more finer hours, there isn’t much I can say. Both The Seer and this year’s To Be Kind are absolutely essential documents of 21st century sonic demolition. And, like the Grateful Dead, whatever is superlative on record is transcendent on the best nights on the road.
