Angels Of Light Discography of CDs


We Are Him We Are Him CD (2007)
CD $20.25 Buy It  Details
Vinyl Record $25.35 Buy It  Details
Angels Of Light music CDs Michael Gira continued to atone for years of fronting the loudest band ever, the Swans, with both his second band, Angels of Light, and his label, Young God Records, which gave the world the likes of Devendra Barnhart and Akron/Family. Both of these endeavors bolstered his belief that music need not split ears to be ...
Angels of Light Sing Other People Angels of Light Sing Other People CD (2005)
CD $20.25 Buy It  Details
Vinyl Record $20.95 Buy It  Details
Angels Of Light discography Singer/composer Michael Gira's 1980s band Swans, with their considerable darkness/bleakness quotient, were perhaps the only outfit that could make Joy Division and Leonard Cohen sound practically jolly. Gira's Angels of Light project, however, is another matter entirely. While the Angels' music is still somewhat grim in lyrical content and vocal timbre, the overwhelmingly intense Swans-like approach has largely given way to a bittersweet melodic presentation. The autumnal, reflective tone is enhanced by Gira's neo-folk proteges Akron/Family, who serve as the backing band. The title THE ANGELS OF LIGHT SING "OTHER PEOPLE" refers not to other songwriters, but rather songs about ...
New Mother New Mother CD (1999)
CD $20.25 Buy It  Details
Angels Of Light songs Starting with a gentle keyboard in "Fragment," which seamlessly moves into "Praise Your Name" with its piano, accordion, brushed drums, and folk/pop backing singers, Michael Gira continues with his intentional break from Swans. Anything but a softening of his art -- sample lyrics from "Praise" include "Kill idiot violence, punish greed, punish me" -- New Mother instead lets Gira experiment even further, concentrating on acoustic guitar songs accompanied by a variety of musicians. As with just about anything he tries, the results are highly individual and astonishingly good. Equally noticeable throughout the full 75-minute disc are Gira's vocals -- ...
How I Loved You How I Loved You CD (2001)
CD $20.25 Buy It  Details
CD $34.49 Buy It  Details
Angels Of Light CD discography Arguably Michael Gira's finest work outside of his pioneering noise band, Swans, HOW I LOVED YOU is an atypically low-key, at times downright beautiful album blending acoustic guitar, piano, accordion, banjo, and quirky orchestrated passages underneath Gira's conversational vocals. One of the centerpiece tracks is called "Song For Nico," and comparisons to classic Nico albums like THE MARBLE INDEX and DESERTSHORE are not far off the mark. Serge Gainsbourg circa HISTOIRE DE MELODY NELSON is another musical touchstone: while Gira's album is nowhere near as musically lavish, a similarly uneasy mood of queasy eroticism, dread, and languor runs through ...
Everything Is Good Here/Please Come Home Everything Is Good Here/Please Come Home CD (2003)
CD $20.25 Buy It  Details
Angels Of Light albums Slouching like a pagan funeral parade towards the genre crossroads between 18th century Appalachian murder ballads and 1970's New York experimentalism comes this third Angels of Light album, a true peak in the vast output of leader Michael Gira. The songs are mature yet monstrous, scary yet heartfelt, sparse yet dense, with hypnotic feedback squalls, primal vocal choruses, strings, guitars, tambourines, chimes, and Gira's rich, deep voice, draping itself over the proceedings like a blanket of poisoned molasses. Tracks balance out between slowly building one-note marches of the damned like "All Souls Rising" and "The Rose of Los Angeles" and quieter ...
