The Bug and Earth have shared “Don’t Walk These Streets,” a new song from their collaborative album Concrete Desert, due out March 24th on Ninja Tune.
[The song] was really written as a reaction to feeling absolutely alienated and set adrift in the surreal manifestation of the American Dream that is L.A. It’s a smacked out jazz, fuzzed up trip, into a social void, that i wrote after realizing there is zero safety net in the States for anyone that falls off the gravy train. And as a pedestrian walking a lot around the city, in my stay during the recording of Concrete Desert, i attempted to conjure the feeling of sheer dread that i felt wandering across the Hollyweird landscape. – Kevin Martin, aka The Bug
Like master painters exploring a subject over a lifetime’s work, Kevin Martin and Dylan Carlson – The Bug and Earth, respectively – have each been mining and defining their genres for more than 20 years. They’re united by an interest in – really an obsession with – heaviness. They search for, examine and break the boundaries between beautiful and ugly, minimal and maximal, light and dark.
