love Pt 2, and a bit surprised there's not more chatter on this one. full thoughts here. there was a Burning Ambulance interview too that i liked a lot, thanks Phil!

It's a lovely album.

I saw them live last Saturday and was (slightly) disappointed. Much too quiet - barely to be heard above the chatter of my neighbours. Somehow the lack of volume drained their energy.

They performed a mix of new album tracks and older songs. Carlson was visibly healthier than I've seen him, very chatty etc.

i like II ok as background music but i don't feel it ever *goes* anywhere or develops in an interesting way. also agree that it was a bit too quiet.

i gave it a good chance too, listened while i walked around MOMA. just seemed kinda blah and i have a pretty good appetite for droney/boring/aimless/sloppy music. maybe i just wanted it to be louder.

I think it's harder to appreciate in 2012 - but if you frame it in the context of when it was released, and into what kind of world, it's a pretty substantial work.

II still sounds great to me. that and extra-capsular extraction are all the earth i ever really need. agree that neither ever really "goes anywhere". they're entirely static, but in a good way. have always seen them as resembling meditation or even massage, prolonged baths in gorgeous, expansive, calorie-dense physical tone. i find it very easy to disengage from active listening and just sort of float around inside the sound, attuned but not attentive.

I'm hoping Earth will be the subjects of the cover story for the next Burning Ambulance print edition; John Fell Ryan from Excepter interviewed Dylan and Adrienne a month or so ago for that purpose. I figured he'd have the basis for an interesting conversation about long-form improv, being in a group with your SO (his wife is also in Excepter), stuff like that. Hoping to get the piece soon.

listening to Hex. it demands to be listened to. not many albums have that simple purity of requirement. it is not entirely pleasurable but it is necessary, like childbirth

How do we feel about drcarlsonalbion? I like everything I've heard so far, but not more than Earth. Anybody check out the soundtrack to the German western (???), Gold? Looks very interesting...

So this drcarlsonalbion crowdfunded film + soundtrack...soundtrack is good and in the vein of the other solo drcarlsonalbion stuff: slow, buzzy guitar riffs played with remarkable restraint and a beautiful tone. The film is...kinda silly and not great? Anyone else see it?

came here to more or less repeat what I said three years ago. every time I listen to Hex it slows time. great album to pull out every odd summer or so

Wrong thread? Hex? Are you talking about bark psychosis? That album does slow down time, indeed. It sucks the movement out of time. I am not sure but there are evenings where codename is the best album of all time. Even better than hex. But then in hindsight it does not hold up. It's such an album of the moment.

it's the distortion, stupid! (alex in mainhattan), Saturday, 9 July 2016 21:09 (two years ago) Permalink

I presume he means the Earth record named 'Hex'?;_Or_Printing_in_the_Infernal_Method

(That Bark Psychosis album is great too, though.)

lol I've not even heard that Bark Psychosis album in full. Codename Dustsucker is great though
