Former Selves/The Original Flowering Earth: Split

Former Selves/The Original Flowering Earth: Split

Between Tjutjuna's Westerner and the recent output from Patient Sounds, Coloradans have been crushing it in 2013. Planted Tapes is no exception to the rule, with the Denver label releasing a superb split between obscure droners, Oakland's Former Selves and Colorado's The Original Flowering Earth. While both musicians use a pallette of guitar and ambience, their methods and ends are polar opposites. Former Selves goes for some vintage Eno-style ambient, while The Original Flowering Earth veers into fucked up noise and finger-picked guitar. Overall, a satisfying diptych from a couple Western boys.

The split is out now on Planted Tapes.
