solstice 2: Earth Stepper

The long awaited Earth Stepper debut is finally available on Spectropol.

Dan Stearns has been posting chunks from this collaborative project with Andrew Heathwaite for a few years, but finally the first full-length album is ready for presentation as a whole, with more collections of tracks coming later in the year.

Stream it and download it (for $5) at Bandcamp:

Earth Stepper is a collaborative project by Dan Stearns (instruments) and Andrew Heathwaite (vocals and text), with a handful of contributions from friends, mixed by Stearns into a microtonal and often noisy multidimensional stew. This album, Passport to Magonia, defies easy description. It beguiles, it challenges, and it gets into the back of your brain and under your skin. As with other music by Stearns (see Golden Town, SpecT 03), there is a conviction behind it that betrays an underlying logic, a subliminal flow, despite the chaotic layered surfaces; a sound-art tethered beautifully to Heathwaite’s words and melodies. Step into this trip.
