Escape to the Tripped-Out Electronica of EARTHEATER ‘Powders’


One of the most magical artists I’ve encountered in the last decade is EARTHEATER. She’s tangibly materialistic and unreal and otherworldly all at the same time. I’ve sat silently listening through her albums many times and found myself in tears one moment and my chest burning with love in another. Somehow she takes electronics, a genre I often find cold and mechanical, and grounds it in our planet and makes it sound like the most natural thing in the world, like her tones are reverberating from Earth’s molten core itself.

A couple of months ago, Eartheater released a new record called Powders via Chemical X — get it here. It’s more magickal than anything I’ve heard from her before, orchestral electronica dipped in trip hop, and experimental jazz, with her eerily angelic vocals enmeshed throughout it all. This record feels like Björk meets Portishead and The Flaming Lips on board an alien rocketship and they all head out into the void of space to record an album with the instruments they find on board.

Eartheater is currently on tour in Europe, and is about to head back and hit all the big cities stateside, so check her remaining dates below. Right now, escape your earthly reality while you listen to the captivating tones of Eartheater’s Powders.
