Swans have always seemed really tribal in some way to me, even when they have been more about casting out spirits or deep isolation. Not exactly always the most “social” music, in my opinion. It’s a quality of fearless expression you can find today in Swans themselves, of course, but also younger acts like Tearist , Palms or Ides Of Gemini who also kind of straddle this lonely line between beauty, stark poetry or powerful melody/humanity versus (or rather in conjunction with) discomfort, shamanistic ritual and the fearless self discovery of not caring if people are ready to be initiated where you need to travel on your own path to full blossoming.

Photographer Miss Magpi  documented elder statesman M. Gira’s act for us at their recent Union Transfer stop, a stunning venue to witness this act who still remain, in their way, more extreme than most “heavy” bands. Sometimes it’s all about the vibe, baby.

Magpi describes the show as:

“.collosal. & .meticulous.”
