the seer

Review: Despite some lengthy tracks, the band's latest release is worth your time.

There’s a cinematic quality woven throughout The Seer, Swans’ newest album. Over the course of its 119 minutes, you can feel the solipsistic stoicism of Kubrick, the industrial dystopia of Lang, the ephemeral spirituality of Malick, the grueling suspense of Leone.
