Earth: Cats on the Briar

The legendary Earth are gearing up for the release of their ninth studio album, Full Upon Her Burning Lips. A slow burning, six-minute desert rocking and whimsically cinematic piece, Cats on the Briar, serves as our introduction to the band's upcoming record, and demonstrates that Earth haven't lost any of their minimal dynamism and the innovation of their musicianship which has graced this world with many groundbreaking releases since the early nineties.

"I wanted this to be a ‘sexy’ record, a record acknowledging the ‘witchy’ and ‘sensual’ aspects in the music… sort of a ‘witch’s garden’ kind of theme, with references to mind altering plants and animals that people have always held superstitious beliefs towards. A conjuror or root doctor’s herbarium of songs, as it were," Dylan Carlson states about the new album which was engineered, mixed, and mastered by the band's longtime associate, Mell Dettmer, at Studio Soli.

At the present time Earth consist of Dylan Carlson and Adrienne Davies who has been with the band since the early 2000s.
