With each new release, Iceage refigures the contours of their typical sound. This is especially true of “Seek Shelter,” their fifth LP. “Seek Shelter” sees Iceage’s propulsive momentum pushing them in new, expansive, ecstatic directions. A decade on from their first record, Iceage continue to harness their lives together through music. This journey, in music and life, has never progressed in a linear fashion.
Earth, meanwhile, remains diligent in their commitment to monolithic minimalism. The sonic vocabulary may have changed — from their early years churning out seismic drone metal to more meditative rock — but the underlying principle of austerity and restraint always stays. Their latest album taps into the Platonic ideal of Earth: an incarnation of the long running band bolstered by the authority of purpose, where every note and every strike on the drum kit carries the weight of the world.
