NOW PLAYING: Earth, ‘Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light I’

The Artist/Album: Earth, Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light I (Southern Lord, 2011)

A Short Review: Dylan Carlson continues to channel decades of severe ups and downs into some of the most evocative instrumental music around. The guitarist’s ever-evolving backing band is especially on point this time, too, from Lori Goldston’s whimpering cello to the loose but locked-in drumming of longtime member Adrienne Davies. Extra credit goes to the title track, a towering 20-minute achievement that deserves its own single-sided 12”.
