A pairing of Brangelina proportions

So two of my favorite songwriters, Spencer Krug and Dan Bejar, are teaming up for a band called Swan Lake. (via) It's a bit too bad that they had to include that screaming maniac from Frog Eyes, but maybe if he weren't there, they'd produce such amazing music that everyone who heard it would experience such a fit of ecstasy that they'd expire on the spot. Maybe. Anyway, their first album, Beast Moans, comes out November 21st. The blurb on their site makes it sound kinda weird:
Their full-length record features, among other things, beast moans, starling voices, cobra hi hats and arpeggiating pianos.

But I think that's all just a code word for "super fantastic".

Hm I wonder what they're brainstorming sessions must be like. I imagine Dan and Spencer tossing lyrical poetry at each other in a midafternoon haze while Carey sits in the corner banging on a drum while occasionally cursing himself.

Never wants to go, always wants to stay, iilllluminated
But I'm no horse, and you are no aaangel
All good things must come to an end, the bad ones just go on forever.
And I will mutter like a lover, who speaks in tongues, oh he speaks in tongues
Don’t make a sound
Don’t make a sound
Don’t make a sound...
