Swans - We Rose From Your Bed With The Sun In Our Head (2012)

M. Gira and crew released a limited 2xCD album to fund the upcoming Swans record tentatively named "The Seer." The first disc and a half are live recordings from their 2011 world tour, and features classics like "I Crawled" and (surprisingly) "Beautiful Child," as well as plenty of new material. The rest of the second disc features acoustic demos for the forthcoming record with a spoken introduction from Gira himself. He drops a Lady Gaga joke, and makes it a point to tell the listener not to make this available for "public consumption." Keep these on the DL, will ya? Anyway, click here if you want to read more about it, and make sure to catch Gira's solo tour next month.
