Dylan Carlson Announces UK Solo Tour; New Split 7″

Always fascinating, always exploring, Earth founder Dylan Carlson continues to grow a solo aesthetic apart and expanding on the signature drones of his long-running avant outfit. On Oct. 14, he’ll launch what’s essentially a long weekender, but during the week, in the UK, taking along with a new 7″ split with Rogier Smal, with whom he may or may not be performing on the tour. Call me crazy, but if you knew what you were getting outright, it just wouldn’t be the same.

The new drcarlsonalbion Carlson‘s chosen banner for solo work to date — song, “Holly’s Jeans” is available now for streaming, and it follows the PR wire info below, which also includes hints at a new Earth album:


Expanding on the far-reaching folkloric explorations of drcarlsonalbion’s solo tour of last year, the totemic figure and his celebrated guitar will be bolstered by the accompaniment of Rogier Smal on drums on the upcoming UK tour which commences on 14 October in Bristol.

Incorporating free playing whilst maintaining the sublime recurrent elements Dylan Carlson is known far, Rogier Smal (Dagora, Marshall Allen, Mick Pontius) brings his singly unique and drumming capabilities to the heady mix.

The duo will be playing material from a split 7” released in conjuction with the tour, as well as expanding and elongating material from drcarlsonablion’s recent Hackney Lass and Latitudes series releases.

Today we can share the track “Holly’s Jeans” from the 7″ release…

    I’m always down for more Dylan Carlson music. Those chops hide secrets to amazing droney goodness.

    Also- has there always been rollover text on images? I feel like as an xkcd and dinosaur comics reader I should be checking for rollover text all the time, so clearly I’m doing something wrong.
