Ep. 291 w/ Earthen Sea and Astrid Øster Mortensen.
Jacob Long has been crafting Earthen Sea material since the early 2000s. He gradually graduated from limited-edition cassettes to releases on Ital's Lover's Rock and Nicolas Jaar's Other People imprints, before linking up with the evergreen label Kranky in 2017. His third album for Kranky, Ghost Poems, comes out next week. We celebrate with an hour of music built as spring emerges around him in Brooklyn, full of contrasts between light and decay.
Astrid Øster Mortensen is a Denmark-born, Sweden-based experimentalist and musician, and is responsible for some of the most beautiful music around. This includes last year's Gro Mig En Blomst LP, and the recent album Skærgårdslyd, both rough-hewn and deeply personal journeys through the Gothenburg archipelago. She shares a hushed and haunting mix in the second half.
