Earth - Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light II (2012)

The 90's Earth has been my church for years. It's been this ocean of ideas floating around, which, no matter how many times I've considered to be through with it, always has proved to have something fresh underneath, next time that I returned to it -- sort of like Jarmusch in cinema, with the exception of the sense of humor. On the other hand, the so called post-rock Earth of the 00's might be seen as less universal, and more of a safe ground for Dylan Carlson to continue working on a singular idea that is, acid folk played in a drone fashion. The idea started, for all we know, with the release of "HEX", in 2005, but it has plagued whatever they've done, ever since. "Hibernaculum", "The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull" and the duology of "Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light", have all been variations on the same theme. Yet, the second volume of "Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light", released earlier this year, made me come back a number of times, mainly because of its instrumentation, and the rather variant tone it is carried through.
