Earthless Streaming Hour Long Jam Session

This July, a colossal collaborative concert, previously privy only to those who were fortunate enough to have helped fill a Netherlandic concert hall multiple moons ago, will be unleashed in audio form as "Earthless Meets Heavy Blanket In A Dutch Haze."

The recording will see a July 8th release date via Outer Battery Records / Roadburn Records. Today, in advance of the album's release, Noisey premieres the album in full with the forewarning, "Get ready to cry because you will never play this well."

Check it out in the player provided below. The following press release was also issued:

"Back-story: an impromptu heavy psych JAM between J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr, Sweet Apple, and one of both Rolling Stone and Spin's 'Greatest Guitarists of All Time') and California space rock masters Earthless at the 2009 SXSW Festival left an onlooking crowd stunned and breathless.

"When word of the performance spread, the world-renowned musicians were asked to play the main stage of Holland's annual international rock festival, Roadburn, to attempt to recreate the magic that revved-up an Austin audience at what was thought to be a one-time event.

"Fast forward to the 2012 installment of the fantastic fest; when Earthless' guitarist Isaiah Mitchell had to back out at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstance, six-string shredder Graham Clise from J Mascis' loud, psychedelic project Heavy Blanket (and who also plays with Mascis in Witch and in the bitchin' Bay Area band Lecherous Gaze) stepped in on second guitar. Backed by the best rhythm section in today's adventurous rock world -- Mario Rubalcaba and Mike Eginton from Earthless -- the quartet stormed the stage for what would become an incredible one-time happening, leading to almost a full hour of some of the most mind-bending heavy psych imaginable.

"The epic jam session gave birth to shredding psychedelia and hard rock blues underpinned by the muscular rhythmic sensibilities of kraut-rock and the unbridled energy of 70's guitar rock. The formidable foundation laid by drummer Rubalcaba became a jumping off point for Mascis, Clise and Eighton to explore their inner cosmoi for consciousness-expanding riffs and music-induced psychedelic experiences."
