VIDEO PREMIERE: EARTH GIRL HELEN BROWN “SET THE WOODS ON FIRE”

July 3rd, 2018 | News

Prominent terrestial entity Earth Girl Helen Brown—profiled in detail here—has a new compilation called Four Satellites coming on In The Red / Empty Cellar that collects the hottest/brightest songs from her EP series dedicated to four of the solar system’s most noted bodies. (Sure, she’s an Earth Girl—but she likes to know her neighbors, too.) Here’s a holiday appropriate—maybe too appropriate—video for her “Set The Woods On Fire,” a song that shares only a biome with Hank Williams but a righteous sound with bands like the Raincoats. If you like your Thanksgiving prayers led by William Burroughs, this red-white-and-truly-blue creative excursion is your personal party starter for tomorrow. Says Helen: “Don’t be a summer bummer! When Earth turns up the heat, keep it cool from the inside out. It takes fire to burn that AC. Good old fracked-out natural gas burning power plant fire. When choosing between discomfort and catastrophe, the choice is yours. Keep it hot, naturally. ☮️”
