Earth, the most recent installment of Earth Girl Helen Brown’s series of planet themed EPs, dropped via cassette in May of 2021. As the literal Earth was still in deep covid-times, we didn’t lay ears on it for another six or so months. Glad we did (!) as the EP finds the Heidi Alexander-led group embracing all manner of sinuous funk, particularly on Earth‘s second track, “Feed Me”. Reminiscent of ESG/Talking Heads/Slits, the near seven minute embrace drips with pathos as Alexander’s double tracked vox breathe in and out over a muscular bass line, polyrhythms, mellotron, sax, flute, Korg, and beyond.
