SONG OF THE WEEK #87: Angels Of Light - "Praise Your Name"

I am of course in genuine awe of most Swans albums (not the real fan, though: The Burning World is my personal favourite), but it is Gira's mellower, more merciful second band, Angels Of Light, that does it for me. Monumental, unbearably beautiful, gorgeously sorrowful 'folk' music that reached its undeniable peak with 2001's How I Loved You. However, they never really topped their first single, "Praise Your Name" (New Mother, 1999), which is in all honesty just wickedly perfect.
