The now defunct noise duo, made up of Pete Swanson and Gabriel Saloman, have included some rare releases amongst the haul

Yellow Swans, the US West Coast noise duo made up of Pete Swanson and Gabriel Saloman, have set up a Bandcamp page.

Five releases are available for download from the page at the time of writing, including the group's final album from 2010, Going Places, and Being There, a bonus disc that accompanied that album. Their 2004 debut studio album, Bring The Neon War Home, is also available for download, in addition to tape reissues of two rare releases: 2003's Detestifi Yellow Swans (which was originally available as a CDR) and 2006 live album Live During War Crimes #2.

Yellow Swans officially disbanded in 2008, with both members going on to pursue other projects. More reissues are forthcoming via the Bandcamp page, which you can check out here, while they'll also be making some material from other artists who released on the duo's Collective Jyrk label available in the future.
