It seems like a bit of a paradox that one can make earthy connected songs with various technological pieces, but Eskmo seems to have found that exact niche with his new EP Terra. After his previous release Language out on Ancestor back in October, Terra brings a totally new perspective, this time darker, slower, and more “earthy”. It’s a wonderful release filled with emotion and craftily arranged drums and progressions that are both moving and soulful. You can grab the EP over on his website (and name your own price for it too), and read my quick little interview with him after the jump.

We’ve given away plenty of great tickets this year to the faithful readers of Gotta Dance Dirty™, but never have I had the opportunity to give away tickets to a sold out show like this one. If you haven’t bought your tickets to see Bassnectar and Eskmo already this Saturday at Fox Theatre in Oakland, you’ll be bummed to know that the show is sold out. On the other hand, you, the savvy reader and Bassnectar fanatic, will be pleased to know that I can make one pair of tickets available at will call. I want to make sure the winner of these tickets is not only a long time reader of our blog, but a huge Bassnectar fan as well.
The challenge, should you choose to accept, will be to email me at tronjeremy at gottadancedirty.com before 7:00 pm tonight both a linked photo (no attachments please) to a piece of Bassnectar swag, whether it be a record sleeve or an old ticket stub, and a brief story about the first time you started reading our humble blog.
Or, if you dropped the ball on buying tickets for a loved one as a holiday gift, tell me about that instead.
The most touching story wins the prize, the winner to be announced via Twitter. Good luck dirty dancers and Happy Holidays from all of us at the dirtiest (music) blog on the intertubes.
PS Get there early because his set is from 9:00 to 11:45.
