Well, Swans released their newest album a few weeks ago, and even though it contrasts in a lot of ways than their previous works, it's got plenty of the defining characteristics of their style.

This particular tune starts off with all the heaviness and dissonance that you'd expect from a Swans song, plus some other strange textures that aren't employed too often by the project. Some light guitars come in to compliment the rest of the arrangement, but it's placed in between what can only be described as massive, synth and horn freakouts that make you lose your mind (temporarily, if you're lucky). However, you can't say that it's boring, in fact, it's probably one of the more interesting things you'll hear this year.

Got any favorite experimental music?
