Earth -- Los Angeles, CA -- April 20th, 2010
My stoner ass arrived just in time to miss Wolves in the Throne Room, so that was a bummer, but Earth made the journey worthwhile. Like a roofied up Neil Young and Crazy Horse meditating on Ennio Morricone and a nameless backwoods picker playing the slow blues under big, heavy skies, Earth's music lilts and drifts through mesmerizing caverns of imagination unlocked by chemicals, low frequencies and high volume. Cosmic tones for mental therapy indeed. Setlist:
The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull
Old Black (new)
Father Midnight (new)
Deuce new jams, both featured a little more 'active' guitar, but still crawling. They're recording the new one in May, hope we'll have some new Earth sounds to enjoy in 2010.
