Earth follow their folksy, spiritually-tinged 'Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light' LP with a further five tracks recorded during the same two week sessions at Seattle's Avast studios in 2011. Part II picks up the heavy-heart porchside vibes and mind-drifts through solemn, melancholy improvisations laden with a brooding tension and grit. The group's instinctive motions are evidently honed to near telepathic communication, providing the sort of slow, conversational musical dialogue you'd expect of a whisky-and-weed-sunk evening with close friends, recounting their woes with a seen-it-all pathos and humoured inflection that could only come from experience. As usual they're at their very best when stretching out, rambling freeform on the cicadas and dusky shimmer of 'His Teeth Did Brightly Shine', or the hushed, deeply engrossing yarn 'A Multiplicity Of Doors', but it's almost worth the entry alone for the interplay of impossibly slow, shuddering drums and smashed psychedelia of 'The Rakehell'.
