The Dumb Earth

The Dumb Earth played a few weeks back at a bar which I’m henceforth going to stop advertising. Their music was solemn, poetic and human. There was a bass saxophone and a trumpet. The atmosphere was somber and they wore dark suits, in my notebook I recorded (carelessly) the word noir. That’s probably all you need to know, at least it is all that I care to relate.

Preceding the Dumb Earth was a band called the Gentle Blooding. This band has no business playing music outside the setting of some seedy businessman's lounge.

And to the news writer of the Beat, just because someone sings dreadfully does not mean you can just start bandying about Tom Waits comparison. Keep up the good work though.
