CD Review – Earlimart “Everyone Down Here”
Everyone Down Here
This band from Cali falls in line with a sound akin to the carriers of the dream-rock torch, Grandaddy and Sparklehorse.
And, though Everyone Down Here doesn’t come close to equaling Grandaddy’s masterpiece, The Sophtware Slump, the album does call to mind Sparklehorse’s last release, It’s a Wonderful Life.
The album begins with a methodically moody meander that stays true throughout, save for a couple of tracks like “We Drink on the Job” and “Burning the Cow” where the band rocks out … sort of. The most interesting thing about this band is that it is an offshoot of a group of Cali kids who create together in their recording studio and funnel the music through three different bands, including Earlimart. This musical commune of sorts is called the Ship Collective.
And they say people from the east coast are weird?
Of course, all of the Collective’s music probably sounds exactly like the dozen tracks on Everyone Down Here: sonic and starry-eyed.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
