The Primitive Power of Dylan Carlson and Earth

Dylan Carlson released the first album to carry the Earth moniker back in 1993, beginning a journey that has taken on a variety of influences, some overt, mostly subtle. You can hear shades of sludge-metal, folk, jazz and country nestled in the ever present drone. Unique and powerful music.



Here's some of my reviews:

Nisennenmondai

Active since 1999, I was lucky enough to see the wonderful Nisennenmondai the other night at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds. So much great music has come out of Japan- Nisennenmondai are pretty special. If you get a chance to see them play, don't pass it up! x
