SWANS was one of the few groups to emerge from the early 1980s New York No Wave scene and stay intact into the next decade. Formed by Michael Gira in 1982, Swans employed a shifting lineup of musicians until their dissolution in 1997. They're back! With new material and a tour! HOLY CRAP! Fans of Young God Records, Michael Gira, Jarboe, Angels Of Light, this is where it all began.
With Xiu Xiu. Xiu Xiu, one of the most original bands, is like a synth pop group that doesn't let the shiny happy face of the genre take over. They know the genre is merely a vehicle for expressing the fully intense and anguished emotions they've got bursting out of them. So instead of punchy casios and happy go lucky tunes, the foremost element is this hushed, trembling voice straining towards the epic wail. Yes, it's dramatic but the sincerity of emotion prevents it from becoming melodramatic.
