New album gets a release date - plus a Michael Gira solo tour:
though I wasn't too keen on the title track on the most recent live album, but it's certainly possible that it's since been transformed.
They opened with To Be Kind both times, didn't sound particularly similar either time.
So excited that I totally missed this thread and posted my own like a total chump.
To recap - Excited.
i've practically jizzed myself.
Yes, today is a good day.
...in glorious 96 kbps.

10 – To Be Kind
2 minutes longer than The Seer album with about half the tracks being 10+ minutes. Bring the Sun/Toussaint L’Ouverture alone is 34 minutes. I've only skimmed it so far; bad rip quality aside, it's sounds rather good so far.
Surely there's enough music out there for you to listen to whilst you wait until you can actually hear a proper version of it?
it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but it still had some tell-tale signs of a low bitrate rip.
I was mostly interested in the track running times. Otherwise, I'll probably give a full listen (I've only skimmed so far) when something better comes along.
Just can't understand it myself. How long is To Be Kind?
01 – Screen Shot 8:05
02 – Just a Little Boy (for Chester Burnett) 12:40
03 – A Little God In My Hands 7:08
04 – Bring the Sun/Toussaint L’Ouverture 34:05
05 – Some Things We Do 5:09
06 – She Loves Us! 17:01
07 – Kirsten Supine 10:32
08 – Oxygen 7:59
09 – Nathalie Neal 10:15
10 – To Be Kind 8:23
more consistently long than The Seer.
Surprised To Be Kind is only 8.23. Thought it might end up a twenty minuter.
'cos they're actually, you know, good.
Looking forward to this.
It leaked. It's more of the same really. He's still very angry at the world.
I've only listened to 5 of the 9 songs. It is good, yes. I don't always have the patience with such lengthy songs though. Totally have to be in the right mood.
I'd say it's not quite as good as The Seer if only because To Be Kind's 34 minute track doesn't really justify its length as well as The Seer's title track did. All the other long songs are rather good though. The first half is relatively more relaxed while the second half is more aggressive.
gonna love this record i think, haven't gone back to the seer loads
sounds very different when Gira performed it solo earlier this year.
I kind of wish they'd keep churning out the slow, dirge stuff from My Father... but, you know, it's not my band.
I wish it was.
for square 'leak dodgers' like myself.
Loving the desolate Neil Young / Dead Man vibe. And all the little flourishes of ambience and slide guitar.
Fine by me. So, so good.
