"It's funny, but the band I did right before Earth had a song called 'Baker's Dozen'. These are in no particular order, so please don't view this as a best-of or an endorsement of any sort of rating system, merely 13 records I could think of rationally while sitting in a London hotel room." - Dylan Carlson

Earth's new album, Angels of Darkness And Demons Of Light Volume II is out now on Southern Lord.

Actually, Dylan, "health food faggot" was a reference to a type of vegetarian dish that was available/popular at the time.

Really top list of great albums, nicely accessible and unpretentious, sent me back to listen to Fairport. Also Mr Carlson sounds like a proper fan, enjoyed his comms.

Newer trailers resemble unique cars and trucks and may even be purchased originating from a company.

Actually, the tracks are called "crazy man Michael" and "sailor's life" - kind of important to get the track names right with this sort of thing.

Completely agree re The Ghetto Walk from the A Silent Way sessions, it's a stunner and a mystery why is was never released before.

What's the reason for hating on Rasputina? I know they played with Nirvana on there a personal reason? Just asking because they have some great songs. Love Smoke Fairies too!
