Earthen Sea “Grass And Trees” released June 7, 2019 is a gentle sigh, one that is rarely troubled by percussive sounds. This isn’t to say there’s not motion to the tracks here, the delays that flicker away all across the album nudge towards the Echocord school of dub techno but this is not an LP for which rhythm is the primary concern. Instead these synthetic tracks drift languidly on, too busy to be readily described as ambient music yet neither quick nor urgent enough for anything other than home listening. “Grass And Trees” exists in a space very much of its own. Jacob Long used to be the bassist in Mi Ami, a group who pushed the no-wave style of acts like Liquid Liquid into the frenzied noise terrain sometimes occupied by the Mars Volta.
