The Bug & Earth

The Bug and Earth, aka Kevin Martin and Dylan Carlson, have announced that they will release a collaborative album, titled ‘Concrete Desert’, next month. Justin Broadrick also gets in on three bonus tracks. It’s quite the noise-maker making-noise party.

“Dylan’s a master at amplifying the flavour of America, but not the side we see in this Trump climate”, says Martin of working with Carlson. “The American dream is like a nightmare under Trump [but Dylan captures the] best side of that dream, a utopian openness. I hear the writing of Cormac McCarthy in his music. His playing conjures deserts, and wide open spaces”.

The newly minted duo will be playing a few live shows in April too, hitting Heaven in London on 12 Apr and the Belgrave Music Hall in Leeds on 13 Apr.
