Live Music Review: Earth.

September 9, 2014

I saw Earth play last night.  They played like 5 songs over the course of an hour and a half.

This dude is awesome.

It was a great show.  I’m really digging the NEW MATERIAL.  If you’re unfamiliar with the band, they formed in 1989 and are considered pioneers of drone metal.  From what I understand, the band has a rotating line up of many contributors with the one constant being lead guitarist, Dylan Carson.  Their musical direction shifts from album to album, taking elements from Americana, Jazz and Folk.  Probably my favorite release from them is “Hex; or Printing in the Infernal Method” which really gravitates towards country and americana influences but their album “The Bees Made Honey in the Lion’s Skull” is probably the best received.

I don’t expect everybody who reads this blog to be into this kind of music because honestly it’s not for everybody.  But if you’re into zoning out or like something in the background while you’re writing blog posts, check this band out.  If you’re into it, I have other band recommendations.
