The Body Lovers

Number One of Three

Young God

Powerful. Emotional. Unnerving. These words are almost always used to describe SWANS, but let’s not go there. Gira has taken off on the most disturbing soundscapes I’ve heard to date and the words above apply one hundred percent. It is intended to be played as one long nightmare, but thankfully ten locator points have been dropped in case your spine can’t handle it. Best way I can imagine listen to the Body Lovers would be while reading The Consumer by Gira. I wonder if he didn’t have this in mind while recording. It is the first of three installments, and I’ve already made my phone calls to make sure I get the next two. If each rolls in around seventy-three minutes, two more will make for the best soundtrack to play at your house on Halloween. Don’t buy candy to give to the kiddies. Their parents aren’t letting them come to THAT house. Keep it coming Gira, you don’t scare me! Young God Records, PO Box 420232, Atlanta, GA 30342-0232
