The San Diego-based power trio Earthless draw on elements from classic rock, psychedelia, electric jazz, and Krautrock. Their lineup includes guitarist Isaiah Mitchell, bassist Mike Eginton, and drummer Mario Rubalcaba. While 2005’s Sonic Prayer was completely instrumental, 2007’s Rhythms from a Cosmic Sky included a vocal cover of the Groundhogs’ “Cherry Red.” After 2008’s Live at Roadburn, the band remained committed to live recording until 2013’s From the Ages. 2018’s Black Heaven became their first studio outing to include original songs with vocals and was followed by From the West, recorded in concert at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall. Earthless returned in 2021 with Live in the Mojave Desert, Vol. 1, consisting of three long instrumentals totaling nearly 80 minutes.
