About this item
Full Earth is the latest psychedelic wunderkind from the far north featuring members of Kanaan and Motorpsycho. Cloud Sculptors is a lengthy instrumental work that combines Ingvald Vassbø's signature drumming, which is both brutally heavy and technically immaculate, with interlocking organs and chugging guitars.
This new quintet, based in Oslo, Norway, is centered around drummer and composer Ingvald Vassbø - best known as the rhythm section of Kanaan and, as of recently, Motorpsycho. Joining Vassbø are the two other members of Kanaan, Ask Vatn Strøm and Simen Wie, as well as two new colleagues.
With a deep connection to minimalist music, especially that of Terry Riley’s organ works, and heavy stoner rock such as Sleep, High on Fire and Elder, Full Earth centers on fuzzed out riffs, sonic experimentalism and noise music.
Full Earth creates entrancing organ and synth-laden soundscapes anchored by tight rhythmic grooves. As arpeggiated keys pass and interlock with one another, a compelling and hypnotic picture reveals itself to the listener gradually.
Cloud Sculptors features six songs, four of which are long-form, fuzz-heavy and sludgy numbers with interesting and unpredictable keyboard elements. The remaining two are shorter organ compositions inspired by James Ferraro, Onehotrix Point Nevers and Györgi Ligeti’s genius contributions to musical history.
In short: Full Earth promises to be a refreshing and truly innovative voice in the heavy rock underground and their debut is not to be missed. First pressing is available on clear vinyl!
