Earthless Rhythms From A Cosmic Sky on LP
Formed in 2001, Earthless prides itself on creating energetic, utterly unique and free thinking instrumental music inspired by an eclectic mix of German Krautrock and Japanese heavy blues-rock. The Californian trio has dedicated itself to mastery of the mind-bending jam session, evoking the spirits of Jimi Hendrix and Black Sabbath in equal measure. Named after a song title from vintage New York garage-psych band The Druids of Stonehenge, Earthless' sound has been called “a sonic kaleidoscope of lava and lightning,” and has earned them the title of “California’s loudest band.”
Each member of Earthless has done time in many other bands. Drummer (and former pro skater) Mario Rubalcaba currently plays in the hardcore punk band OFF! and has also occupied the drum throne in Rocket From The Crypt and Hot Snakes amongst many others. Bassist Mike Eginton played with Electric Nazarene and guitarist Isaiah Mitchell was most recently in Howlin’ Rain, has played with Nebula and Drunk Horse and also heads up the Bay Area band Golden Void.
Rhythms From A Cosmic Sky is Earthless' critically acclaimed second studio album, released in May 2007, their first album for Tee Pee Records. It consists of two instrumental pieces, with the first track "Godspeed" divided into five suites and second track "Sonic Prayer." The album was recorded and mixed from January 1–4, 2007, at Louder Studios in San Francisco with producer Tim Green and mastered by Dave Gardner at Magneto Mastering in Minneapolis.
