|"Primitive And Deadly, Earth's tenth studio collection, Carlson and long term foil, drummer Adrienne Davies, manage to pull off the trick of completing an Ouroborean creative cycle, 25 years in the making.
Some familiar faces on Primitive And Deadly: Bassist Bill Herzog (Sunn O))), Joel RL Phelps, Jesse Sykes And The Sweet Hereafter), additional layers of guitar from Brett Netson (Built To Spill, Caustic Resin) and Jodie Cox (Narrows).
But perhaps the largest left turn on Primitive And Deadly though, is prominence of guest vocalists Mark Lanegan (Queens Of The Stone Age) and Rabia Shaheen Qazi (Rose Windows) who transform the traditionally free ranging meditations of Earth into something approaching traditional pop structures.
Available everywhere early September 2014. Vinyl pre-sales via http://www.southernlordeurope.com will be announced soon as well as some August tour dates."
