Is Michael Gira's hair painted on? Can anyone tell me? Anyway here his the new album from the ex Swans man which is a collaboration and split album with Akron/Family. To call it good would be like calling the Eiffel Tower tall.  Despite the horrid calvalcade of noise that ruins tracks 1, the Akron/Family side is quite gospel-ish in places with the choraled vocals and lots of fireside sing-a-longs. I much prefer the Angels of Light side (which is Michael Gira backed by Akron/Family). The songs make a lot more sense and have that incredible intensity the Swans always had. Again there's one or two gospel - ish singalongs but this time reigned in by Gira's pop sensibility whereas the Akron Family side runs rather too wild for my tastes. Overall a really interesting collaboration. On Young God Records.
