4 stars Emerging originally as a sleep little EP before David Tibet, in his constant process of reissuing and fiddling, cluttered it up with inessential bonus tracks to album length, Earth Covers Earth represents some of the first new directions David Tibet would grow Current 93's sound with after wiping the slate clean with Swastikas for Noddy. Whilst that album presented an extremely stark, bare, stripped-back style, Earth Covers Earth finds Tibet taking this neofolk style and beginning to add new embellishments to it again, working out a new musical vocabulary which would eventually be used to great effect on Thunder Perfect Mind. (There's even, as on that album, a song that seems to consist of David Tibet side-eying some of the dubious politics and stances of regular collaborator and Death In June mastermind Doug P.)
Warthur | 4/5 |
