A photographic account of heavy music in Portland, Maine
Why re-create the wheel?
Last week, we attended the Swans performance at Port City Music Hall. In an unexpected and exciting twist, we provided a photo to MaineToday Media that appears in today’s edition of the Maine Sunday Telegram. As such, we’ve opted to direct your attention to their review instead of writing our own.
Oftentimes [Michael Gira] would slowly raise his arms, as if his hands were levitated by the vibrations his band produced, and during these moments he could have passed as a man performing an incantation.
Ker is a smart bastard. Even if you don’t like the bands he reviews, they’re so well written it hardly matters. Those reviews are often archived within The Jacket Pocket — a Tumblr blog that offers Ker’s first-person re-examinations of music from two years past, among other things.
Give it a look.
