It came as no surprise to read that one of the members of Grasscut scores film and television. Though a connection to dirt, earth and plant life would generally create a grounding experience, Unearth really sounds like an extended sound clip from a 30-second spot. The duo did bury 10 boxes with tapes and Walkmen around England; however, containing a track and “shadow version of the same place.” Grandiose, theatrical and picturesque, it’s not to say the album isn’t beautiful, but comes off as somewhat contrived.
