It's absolutely nuts that we have this show.
I love these two bands. Plain and simple.

And they quietly released a brand new record recently...and now I get to buy it from the source.

“It’s fair to say that Raised by Swans could be placed in the league of those unsigned, unadvertised titans like the post-hardcore, mysterious gods The Pax Cecilia, Sufjan Stevens-like Freelance Whales, or, until a year and a half ago anyway, melodic death metal heroes Be’lakor. The Canadian quartet’s debut Codes and Secret Longing in 2005 was the kind of album that few might share in secret, a treasure that a small number ever discovered. This year’s sophomore No Ghostless Place finds the band developing their lush sound into a Clarity-era Jimmy Eat World mixed in with a Final Straw-aged Snow Patrol concoction of sorts. While that might sound interesting and appealing to many listeners as it stands, throw in some post-rock guitar tones in the style of Explosion In The Sky, and you have yourself something really promising. Whether it’s the mournful, heartfelt tale of “Night Fighter” or the sheer bliss of pop, hit-in-the-making “Hail Of Arrows”, [the band] has a way with crafting a subtle, retrained happiness, or, in the case of the former, bringing me to tears with a mere suggestion…..Raised By Swans are sure to light up the unsigned underground.” – sputnikmusic.com
