Sailors with Wax Wings - Sailors with Wax Wings (2010)
Keeping in mind that some members are in multiples of these, consider this partial list of acts associated with this project: Swans, Godflesh, Slowdive, Prurient, Krallice, Unwound, Throbbing Gristle, My Dying Bride, Marissa Nadler, The Knife, Katatonia, Current 93, Pyramids, and Nadja.
Their one and only album -- unlike the brilliant but disjointed mess that such a list might lead one to imagine -- is a warm, sonically cohesive fusion of blackened post-metal, downcast shoegaze, and neopsychedelia. Essential opiate jams.
1. Soft Gardens Near the Sun, Keep Your Distant Beauty
2. There Came a Drooping Made with Violets
3. If I Should Cast Off This Tattered Coat
4. And Clash and Clash of Hoof and Heel
5. Yes, I Have a Thousand Tongues, and Nine and Ninety-Nine Lie
6. God Fashioned the Ship of the World Carefully
7. There Was One Who Sought a New Road
8. Strange That I Should Have Grown So Suddenly Blind
Like any other world
