New Trackstheneedledrop1 Comment

Are you one of the admirable few who's managed to abstain from listening to Swans' massive new album To Be Kind? Hang in there - there's only a handful of days left to go! But maybe you've already worn out their other 12 records waiting and need a little something to keep you from cracking? Well, CHVRCHDVST Records is here for you, with this sprawling, 32-song-long tribute album to Swans by various underground acts ranging from drone to folk to post-punk in style. It's like the length of two whole Swans records (or four early Swans records)! This really oughtta keep you occupied til Tuesday...But seriously, you should just give in and listen to the album already. No one's gonna judge.

Also, Swans has begun uploading its back catalog to their YouTube channel. Check that shit out if you've been meaning to get into their music.
