WE FELL TO EARTH / We Fell To Earth [2009]

Rich File (½ of U.N.K.L.E.) & Wendy Rae Fowler teamed up to record the eerie spaced-out 2009 self-titled trip-hop album We Fell To Earth.
Unlike their genre partners Portishead & Massive Attack, WFTE steer clear of the overly dreary and center more along the lines of a Jefferson Airplane dabbling in krautrock sort of psychedelic sound in the 90's.  Driven by pulsating percussion, subtle yet plucky guitars and vocal spotlights shared by both members, the album never really seems to tread over new ground but remains a pleasant listen nevertheless.
