On this episode of the Rock it Out! Blog, Consequence of Sound senior staff writer Dan Caffrey sits down with Michael Gira just prior to Swans’ recent show at Chicago’s Lincoln Hall. The two discuss the artwork of Swans’ last album, 2012’s The Seer, and how Gira connects it to a theory about the universe. Gira also shares insight into the books that he’s currently reading, his adventures hitchhiking across the U.S., and how David Cronenberg’s movies made him think that pop culture could physically alter your brain’s shape.
