Since ending his tenure with aural colossus, The Swans, Michael Gira has released several excellent albums under his moniker Angels of Light and otherwise has released a few solo albums, been involved in some collaborations, released an album of spoken word. And this is all when not otherwise running his label Young God. Via Young Gods Records, Gira has discovered some of the more interesting (to TSOI anyway) talent such as Calla, Devandra Banhart, and Akron/Family.
This is a track, “Destroyer” off of his solo album Songs for a Dog recorded live at Highline Ballroom in September, 2007. Most of the set were from the recently released Angels of Light album, We Are Him, as well as material from solo albums and a few The Swans songs for good measure. As one might expect, he ended the set with “Goddamn the Sun”.
