I’ve been listening to this all morning and I can’t get it out of my head. My friend James wrote this cover of Bathory’s “Necromancy”, and it is by far one of my favorite renditions of the song.
Album: The Seer
Title: The Daughter Brings the Water
Frequently, my friends shout at me that I need to listen to BAND X for REASON Y, and I always give them EXCUSE Z as to why I have not done so in any capacity. SWANS is a band that I have always heard rumblings of, where people have mentioned them in high esteem. Despite recommendations upon recommendations, these rumblings have gone unheeded, save for a song or two here and there.
Somehow, I got a wild hair up my ass to finally break this embargo and listen to The Seer on a walk through Manhattan late at night. It wouldn’t be the first choice most SWANS fans would recommend. But, this album has hooked me between “Mother of the World" and this track, "The Daughter Brings the Water". This is magic, in its purest, undiluted form. Two and a half minutes long and yet it’s infinitely more evocative, symbolic and arresting than most bands’ respective discographies. It’s unreal what this is doing to me. I couldn’t sleep last night thinking about it, and other things. Suddenly, after weeks of depression, anxiety, anhedonia, insularity, I am completely consumed by imagery, sounds, ideas… I feel as though, on some level, this is an album I have been waiting 26 years of my life to hear.
Now I’m daunted by the immense amount of work I have to do, where I’ll be spending an innumerable amount of days, weeks and months soaking in their back catalog.
Additionally, if anyone could point me to the source material used in this video, I would be eternally grateful.
