Dylan Carlson, founder of the mythical¬†Seattle group Earth, has decided to dive into the world of soundtracks. ¬†Gold¬†is about the pioneering settlers of Canada, a perfect motif for Carlson’s spacious, sprawling soundscapes.

I’m reminded of Neil Young’s incendiary score of Jim Jarmusch’s Dead Man, a perfect visualization of a long, lonely and treacherous journey. ¬†This will sit comfortably¬†in the¬†soundtrack section of our Expedits¬†as easily it would in our post-rock area. ¬†A bit pricey, yes…but a truly special release that makes sense on vinyl.

Gold is also available in gold vinyl (an edition of 400) and ‘texas tea’ black vinyl (an edition of 500).
