drcarlsonalbion – UK Solo tour

Dylan Carlson of Earth is returning to Edinburgh in October to play a solo show at Sneaky Petes as part of a UK tour under the drcarlsonalbion banner. I’m excited about this gig, and Carlson returning to Edinburgh so soon, although quite unsure what to expect musically.

At the beginning of the year Carlson launched a Kickstarter project seeking funding for a solo release to be titled Coleman Grey presents ‘Falling with a Thousand Stars and Other Wonders from the House of Albion’.

Check out…. Sun Eater

Recently came across Sun Eater on the Captain Beyond Zen blog. Sun Eater released their self titled EP earlier this year, and it’s absolutely brilliant. It’s heavy, intense, brooding psychedelic rock. Can’t wait to hear more from these guys. Their EP can be downloaded for free on their bandcamp.

The Denatured E.P.

Getting things back on track, I’d like to announce the title of my upcoming ep, The Denatured. Hopefully it will be released this autumn. It will feature three possibly four tracks with a stoner/blues/doom sound. Artwork to follow shortly.

Further to this, there have been a few more changes to the website. Some of them visible, some behind the scenes. I’ve added a media page, at the moment it features my soundcloud demo recordings. A version of Track 3 is the only one that has survived to The Denatured ep.
