Dylan Carlson has been leading Earth down the same Dead Man-esque – as in Neil Young’s spooky Jim Jarmusch score – path for more than five years now. And while all of the band’s post-Hex albums have been essential listening, Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light I is downright stunning, full of tumbleweed tropes that make riding off into the sunset sound as hip and heavy as an old Morricone soundtrack. To top it all off, we still have the second half of this sprawling set to look forward to in 2012, as it was originally intended as a double LP.
