1. The Knot (new piece)
2. Screen Shot
3. Cloud of Forgetting
4. Deliquescing (new, discarded)
5. Cloud of Unknowing
6. The Man Who Refused To Be Unhappy (new)
7. The Glowing Man
Total Running Time: 2 hours, 36 minutes

I went to the Vancouver show in September 2016, and I was fucking BLOWN AWAY by this performance, so I yearn for this release. Of course, the motherfucker sold out on the web in 5 seconds, and I cannot get to a live show to pick it up. (Limited release 3000 copies.)

I'm going to fucking kill myself if I don't acquire this somehow.

Hi Skuj! So, you only stop by when there's a Swans thing to discuss huh?

I really do hope the reason is a little more substantial than that

Ordered my copy this morning......per Young God Records

CORRECTION: DELIQUESCENCE 2xLIVE SWANS CD IS STILL AVAILABLE! It was marked as sold out for about 12 hours. We miscalculated and didn't realize the rest of the final run is still on press. These will ship as soon as they come in from the plant and Michael has a chance to sign them.

Actually, yes.

So this 2CD is fucking great. Gira seems to have taken Swans to a much dreamier / chantier / spiritualer / meditativer place over the last couple of years. Glowing Man has long pieces that flow and mutate about this groove. Gira calls them prayers.

A couple of the new pieces on Deliquescence are in the same vein. Add to that the Glowing Man songs here, and really, we have 156min of music "as a mood". Screenshot and The Man Who Refused To Be Unhappy inject some much appreciated adrenalin / funk into the proceedings, but the overall effect is one of....er.....Bliss. (Gira provides some notes on "Bliss" in the album layout.)

This live recording is produced very crisply. Audience is heard only at start/end of tracks.

I love this Motherfucker.
