Will Howlett Really good material, and indeed "genre-bending" as someone else stated. Experimental without pretense, rock without simplicity - a great example of what Prog should be. Favorite track: The River's Red.

DangerWelch When most bands have this diverse a sound it's labeled as "genre-bending" and is inevitably accompanied with a sense of pretension and sterility. These cats, however, seem to just shrug and play their asses off while ignoring genre pitfalls entirely. Also, hats off for creating an EP this full of texture and theatricality that doesn't let layers and overdubs overshadow the songs. Favorite track: The River's Red.

about

Earth Engine Detroit, Michigan

"Earth Engine’s EP is a spastic, satiated cluster of baroque rock that has wrangled a plethora of genres and in the process created their own." - audiofemme.com

"It’s never a straight shot -- more like a deliberate detour. The structured chaos is just enough to make sure you won’t walk away." - vocoyd.blogspot.com

Track Name: Remain
when the waters rise
and the sunlight hurts yor eyes
when the wires die
and a panic fills the sky

when everything has changed
my love for you will remain

when the mountain falls
and the buzzards call out our names
when the oceans weep
and the towers crumble in shame

when everything has changed
my love for you will remain


lyrics, MR
Track Name: The River's Red
umbilical pulsations
feed the machine so full (umbrella heaven)
a one world denomination
keeps it in control

the River's red, and overflowing
higher
copulating capillaries
spilling over

illusionary causes
and reason undefined (umbrella heaven)
network, syntax, error
cut permission - axiomatic
access denied

the River's red, and overflowing
higher
copulating capillaries
spilling over

recycle your soul

...umbilical pulsations


lyrics, MR
Track Name: Joy Blue
superficiality
always try my best to be
for the sake of brevity
on the right side of
talking head reports just one
of the faces seated in
a daybed reformation
no time to argue

tell me i am good enough
i want to be good enough
tell me that i try too hard
i'll fix myself for
you and you and you and my
outward intonation slips
into exit in the sky
i feel like dying

joy blue spirals upon themselves
heaven opens up beneath me

Elohim; the Royal We

pry back the fingers of the
godhand reach euphoria
blinded eyes of Varuna
(the name knows no nation)
stuck android insomnia
don't forecast what i disclose
for fear of my own riposte
(i hear the sound of)

joy blue spirals upon themselves
heaven opens up beneath me

Elyon

everything was ending
and everything was fine
but now it's starting over
not another life
spare me the journey
i've been there before
a millenia ago

the Anunnaki smiles up sweetly
and everything is over



lyrics, MR
Track Name: A Fever of Static
indigo bleeds from eyes of green
lost in a dream, a fever of static screens
that cold cosmic whisper
of televised cries
chartreuse your embargo,
our satellite dies

my winter has deceived me

so murder me my sunshine,
wither, wilt, and scathe
colloquialize my mind
and burn these tears away
cauterize my mind
and burn, burn, burn

fuck me red and white
and i'll kiss you so purple under pink moonlight
if i could die a thousand deaths,
then i'd try them all on for size

my winter has deceived me

so murder me my sunshine,
wither, wilt, and scathe
colloquialize my mind
and burn these tears away
cauterize my mind
and burn, burn, burn
Track Name: Year One
eighteen years
since life betrayed the light and reason
now the sunshine hurts my brain
disappeared for twelve, but now i'm home
so father tell me how to make them afraid

if i ring the bell, he will come
and i thank you
but i'd rather die than wait

fear the weight
of idle hands sat through the season
but this winter never seems to change
a filtered rage, i was never one to yield to reason
and nevermind how i spend my nights

if i ring the bell, he will come
and i thank you
but i'd rather die than wait

a city of goats and fools - i will not be one
i will not be one
catalyst of chills up the necks of heartless joes
i will be the one

if i ring the bell, he will come
and i thank you
but i'd rather die than wait,
give me a sign

i'm
