Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Is this the same California indie-rock band that once made such a dissonant post-punk racket that it regularly collected comparisons to Social Distortion and Pixies? Apparently, but it seems the members of Earlimart have gone through a serious Radiohead-style rebirth, discovering the hidden power of intricacy over immediacy. Everyone Down Here expands on the soft sonic strokes of the The Avenues EP, pairing fractional studio noise with hushed vocals and sweeping melodies. There are hints of Sparklehorse and Grandaddy (whose frontman, Jason Lytle, co-produced this project) in songs like "Lazy Feet 23" and "Dreaming Of…," where singer-songwriter Aaron Espinoza's own glorious vision finally comes into view. There is nothing quite as satisfying as the sound of a band finding its way. --Aidin Vaziri

Just what the world needs, another spacey band from Los Angeles. Fortunately Earlimart, named after a migrant worker farm town halfway between Los Angeles and Fresno, goes beyond being just "another spacey band" manging to fill icy cold music about decay and civilization (I'm looking at you Grandaddy) with warmth and compassion. Like Grandaddy, and The Flaming Lips for that matter, Earlimart went from releasing a couple albums as a post-punk experimental art-rock band into an act that can realize quiet, hushed spaces as appropriately as more boisterous ones. Both *Everyone Down Here* and *The Avenues E.P.* (a slightly earlier release) were written at the same time, so it makes sense to talk of them together despite the band's ever-changing line-up, apart from frontman Aaron Espinoza, including Patrick Park, the New Folk Implosion's Russ Pollard, and Grandaddy's Jason Lytle and Jim Fairchild.
*Everyone Down Here* is basically the best record the eels didn't release last year. Imagine a studio jam session between E from the eels, Elliott Smith, and Grandaddy - and you have Earlimart. Lasting only 32 and some minutes, *EDH* gives you just enough to get sucked in before coming to a close. The album opens up with the slow build of guitars on "We're So Happy (We Left The Piano In The Truck)" before another distorted guitar comes in with the melody line giving way to a falling effect and what could best be descibed as those sonar deep sea pings you hear in those submarine movies with a dash of echo thrown in just for kicks. The track closes in with some childish humming before the familar strum of "We Drink On The Job" kicks in.

Say goodbye to the old Earlimart. In second album "Everyone Down Here," the formerly punky-rock group changes their sound to a sort of mildly Grandaddyish sound, complete with stoned vocals and a gently spacey rock sound. It's simple and pleasant, though never quite excellent.

It starts off with the mellow "We're So Happy (We Left the Piano in the Truck)" solid fuzz-chime-rocker "We Drink on the Job," and the melancholy "The Movies," with a gentle piano-percussion solo that is among the best moments of the album. But it strays into blistering hard-rockin' turf with "Lost At Sea," and hits midpoint with a weird little thirty-second instrumental that seems to be mostly random strumming and feedback. It sounds like they're unsure whether to continue as they are, or go back to their old sound.

But Earlimart makes up its mind quickly, and gets the hard rock out of their systems. The rock-y sound continues with the ear-splitting "Burning the Cow," only to die away in favor of a new sound. This spacey-folk sound climaxes with

"Hospital" and the eerie "Big Ol' Black," before rounding off with a tinkling, sputtering "Untitled" and the lullaby-like "Nite Nite."

Quick SAT moment: Earlimart's "Everyone Down Here" is to Grandaddy what the Decemberists are to Neutral Milk Hotel -- a pleasant sort of "lite" sound without most of the musical complexity. But this sound fits Earlimart a lot better than their original sound did, which was a sort of unoriginal Pixies/Sonic Youth sound.

The music is definitely showing growth, with its shimmery piano and good guitar riffs. Not to mention the occasional electronica swash, hints of spacey distortion and copious amounts of musical fuzz in all the right places.

Lots of comparisons to other bands in the reviews. Ok, here's mine.... I was listening to a Real Audio station and heard this great sounding band with some interesting fuzz piano, cool guitar riffs and a voice that I compared with Ultra Vivid Scene--especially the first song. I bought Everyone Down Here and found it to have lots of Ultra Vivid Scene characteristics that I liked. I also seem to find some Wilco here... with that jam feel and interesting vocals. I do not think it is The Strokes or Radiohead, but I guess I can see the analogy. I like this album--it is strong musically, and while I have not heard the earlier stuff (with its mostly poor reviews here), this album must be different.... buy it if you like Ultra Vivid Scene, Wilco, or similar bands.

I heard Earlimart live at a recent Grandaddy concert in Chicago. They brought the house down with manic guitar, driving percussion, and impassioned vocals. The CD is somewhat more subdued, but equally strong. Co-produced by Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, the CD sounds a little Grandaddy-like: catchy melodies that wander through your head like hi-tech dreams. However, Earlimart is definitely not a Grandaddy clone--their music is sadder, more straightforward, with more guitar and much less synthesizer. A very good buy.

i bought this album because jason lytle of grandaddy co-produced a few tracks, but i ended up liking the other songs better. the whole thing is great though. listen to it a few times before judging it, took some time to grow on me. and i don't know about the radiohead+air=earlimart assesment. the songs remind me more of grandaddy and sparklehorse. good stuff.
