To call Swans’ latest album To Be Kind a collection of new music is a bit of a misnomer. I saw them about two weeks after their last album, 2012’s The Seer, was released and three tracks that would end up on To Be Kind­—“Nathalie Neal,” “She Loves Us!” and the title track—were already being featured (albeit in different forms) as part of their set. In fact, they played as many songs that would end up on To Be Kind as they did from the album they were touring behind.
