And the Swans remind me of Death in June, is that random?
Somebody at school once made comparisons between Cave and Swans, but aside from similar lyrical content, I didn't see the sound comparison, but I could be wrong.

BOOOOOOOOOOO“We’re pretty happy with just touring. There was talk, ‘Should we write new stuff?’ and we all looked at each other and said ‘Nahhh, **** it.’ We did work up one new little thing and that was really energizing.”
Damn, you go to school with people who like Nick Cave and Swans? That's awesome. I think there are some similarities in Gira's later stuff to Nick Cave. The song "Jim" from "My Father...." reminds me of Cave a bit.Somebody at school once made comparisons between Cave and Swans, but aside from similar lyrical content, I didn't see the sound comparison, but I could be wrong.
The Seer Returns: An Interview with Swans' Michael Gira < PopMatters
I was pretty surprised when I first heard Jarboe was on this. Pretty sure during the press for the last album, he said he hadn't even spoken to her in 10 years.The new album also has a track [“A Piece of the Sky”] where Jarboe contributes some backing vocals and a sound collage. When Swans first reformed, you dismissed the idea of collaborating with her. What changed about that situation?
We’re still in contact and I like her a lot. She has a good voice, and I was constructing this sound environment and it needed a voice, so I asked her to sing a series of notes and it worked. I have nothing against her being involved in a tangential way, but the whole notion of Swans getting back together and playing the old songs, the Michael and Jarboe ones, feels repugnant to me. That’s a reunion experience, which I’m not interested in.
