Morphine without vocals.

The soundtrack to a dialogue-free David Lynch movie that runs forever.

John Zorn’s SPILLANE, expanded and slowed down.

The guitar/bass stuff in the moodier Cowboy Junkies songs from The Trinity Sessions.

The perfect music for listening while you read a crime novel about empty streets, dark alleys, and mysterious goings-on after midnight.

I know almost nothing about these guys, but I can’t stop listening to BLACK EARTH.

If you know anything about them beyond what Wikipedia says, please share.

If you enjoy this sample, toss them some money and buy one of their albums.
