Music reviews – recordings and live performance
Review of Swans great new album ‘The Seer’ to be found here:
EMI, 095 5942
Is this a symptom of my age that folk suddenly seems so attractive, or is it the inherent melancholia in this music slicing through the loneliness of my own atrophying heart which has caught me in its thread? Whatever the reason, I’ve been listening to this album over and over for the last few weeks and it has seeped into my muddied misery with a shimmer of strings and a low hum of regret.
