     New Music: Swans   The Apostate (10 minute edit)

    As previously reported, post-punk icons Swans will release a new double album, The Seer, on August 28th via Michael Gira’s own imprint Young God. The guest-heavy effort, featuring Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O, Low’s Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, Akron/Family, and more, ends with the 23-minute epic “The Apostate”. A ten-minute edit of the morose, multi-layered cut is now up for download.
