Formed circa 1982, gone by 1997 and revived in 2010, NYC art-noise behemoths Swans defied reason in 2012 as they attracted their largest audiences yet with a sprawling triple LP (The Seer), unrelenting two-hour gigs, and a lack of regard for both commercial relevance and bankable nostalgia. The band’s latest 121-minute colossus, To Be Kind, comes across as an ecstatic exercise in the bleakest, stormiest psychedelia imaginable.
