The Angels Of Light – Everything Is Good Here

Former Swans mainman Michael Gira financed this recording solely through sales of a live CD, and the lack of corporate involvement is plain to hear. Meticulously crafted yet vibrant and visceral, it’s like a claustrophobic noir soundtrack crossed with a jauntily macabre musical. It’s urban and tribal, soulful, sacred and funny, recalling The Bad Seeds and The Residents. A magnificent, hugely welcome return.
