Review

Jacob Long's work as Earthen Sea has already firmly established itself on Ital's Lovers Rock label, but here the San Francisco-based artist is branching out to a sympathetic ear - Silent Season. Much like other artists on the label, Long's fusion of heavy atmospherics and submerged techno make for a compelling, immersive listen. At times, such as on "The Sky Is A Sea Of Darkness", he opts for a looming set of pads and textures that bear down on the listener. Elsewhere, more delicate sounds interact across the frequency range, but what binds the record together is the weight of the ambience Long is so adept at crafting. Without a thread of a kick drum pulse to be heard throughout, it's another strong step on for Earthen Sea.
