[2010] Swans ‎- My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky

This highly anticipated album is as powerful and diverse as anything Gira’s done, in Swans or otherwise. It opens with the epic, soul-crushing (bone crushing?) No Words/No Thoughts, but quickly veers to more pastoral terrain, then on to ever-ascending mono-tonal grooves, a filmic-folk idyll featuring Devendra Banhart on lead vocal that abruptly shifts to cataclysm, then on to more airplane-taking-off ascensions, art songs, and more lethal sonic pummeling. In short, this is the new SWANS album, a significant advance from where Swans left off and as challenging and emotionally demanding as ever.
1 No Words / No Thoughts 9:23

Four Tet - There Is Love In You (2010)

Four Tet's There Is Love In You shines as a beautifully crafted album that feels like a colorful journey through a vast gamma of hypnotic soundscapes.

Perhaps a bit more accessible and melodic than previous releases like Ringer in a strange kind of way.
