SONG OF THE DAY: Swans, “A Little God in My Hands”

Michael Gira

If only more of our weeks could end like this—with a new Swans song that gets straight to the point of dragging us through the gutter alongside a steady rhythm section, whiplash-inducing guitar licks, extraterrestrial effects and blasts of power electronics and smeared horns that match Michael Gira’s tentative grip on reality.

‘To Be Kind’ is due out May 13th through Young God/Mute.
