HAVE YOU VISITED EARTH LATELY?

How long’s it been since you listened to Earth? Perhaps this sweet Earth tribute comp, titled “Legacy of Dissolusion” (No Quarter Records), will cause you to revisit ’em, eh? From the press release: "Often attributed to helping sculpt the ever so popular Doom/Drone/Stoner
Metal genres, Earth’s influence was far more wide-reaching as evidenced
by this varied collection of remixes entitled “Legacy of Dissolution” –
a fitting title for a band who existence was corrosive from the start.

Only lasting member Dylan Carlson helped compile the list of remixers,
each of whom chose their favorite track from the Earth back catalog.
“Legacy …” comes at the dawn of a new era for Carlson who will enter the
studio in April to record the first new Earth album in 9 years. "Mogwai, Jim O’Rourke, Autechre, Sunn0))) and others cover Earth on the comp, which you can’t get through us. But perhaps you’d like to get some of the real thing? Follow the link below!
