Michael Gira is a restless 60-year-old pioneer of the bridge between avant noise and goth theatrics, and after Swans reformed in 2010, the onetime boyfriend of Madonna has gleefully taken the spotlight the reunion circuit has handed him. With To Be Kind, his second double of three post-reboot albums, guests like Karen O, St. Vincent's Annie Clark and Gira's own fiancée Jennifer Church even out the masculine swamp-rock mud of five 10-minute-plus tracks and one half-hour odyssey ("Bring the Sun/Toussaint L'Ouverture") that includes the clomping of horse hooves halfway through.
