The Quietus Albums Of The Year So Far Chart 2020
Great to see Sex Swing and Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs in The Quietus Albums Of The Year So Far Chart 2020, they say:
55. Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs - Viscerals
For opener 'Reducer' the spotlight is on the cosmic lead guitar licks. 'New Body' grinds along antisocially like Swans or perhaps some kind of half-speed Jesus Lizard number. There's a weird almost dubsteppy intermission with some spoken-word vocals involving an extended gastronomic metaphor. There's maybe a thrash influence rearing its head elsewhere and some accessible growl-along choruses here and there. The crucial thing, however, is that the riffs are still heavier than Ray Winstone after a slap-up black pudding breakfast.
6. Sex Swing - Type II
Psychedelic rock is supposed to be transcendent, but what makes Sex Swing so powerful is that they transcend the limitations of psychedelic rock. Their sound is so full of possibilities: violence, sexuality, sacrifice, even religion. If there was a future to look forward to for heavy guitar music, this is it. Sex Swing: the lost futures of rock & roll have been realised. Even the worst, the most terrifying, psychedelic experiences can have transformative potential.
