The Bug vs Earth

Concrete Desert

Ninja Tune

Released: 16th June 2017

examining and breaking the boundaries between beautiful and ugly, minimal and maximal, light and dark, Kevin Martin and Dylan Carlson make music that is heavy in the most thrilling of ways. Pulsing soundscapes, ambient pinks and whites and irresistible grooves. Justin Broadrick (Godflesh / Napalm Death / Techno Animal / Jesu), the influential noisemaker and long-time Martin cohort, was invited in his JK Flesh guise to the sessions to make two tracks - ‘Dog’ and ‘Pray’, both of which feature as bonus tracks. Broadrick grew up in the concrete desert of central Birmingham in the 70s / 80s and here he verbalises the void at the core of that urban hell.

Three extra tracks (including the two featuring JK Flesh) will be available as a bonus digital download with the CD and as a bonus 12” titled ‘Below Heaven’ that comes with the LP.
