Earth consulted their entire catalog at their appearance with Ô Paon at Le Poisson Rouge on Thursday (6/16). That included material from their much lauded recent Southern Lord release Angels of Darkness Demons of Light 1. The band, who is currently touring on the (considerable) strength of said record, concluded their tour last night in Newport, Kentucky, but will begin a second leg of dates that will focus on the West Coast in July. They're also scheduled to hit both Hopscotch Festival and ATP New Jersey later in the year.
Ô Paon, aka Quebec's Geneviève Castrée aka Woelv, opened all of Earth's recent tour dates, playing what Greg Cristman called "absolutely gorgeous, drifty" tunes that were impressive. Earth, who were similarly great, announced the release of a follow-up LP to their currently release from stage; look for Angels Of Darkness Demons Of Light 2 in November.
