Damon and Naomi

If multitasking is the byword of the new millennium, Damon and Naomi have mastered it. Since dissolving their ethereal ensemble Galaxie 500, the couple has released five albums; jump-started both a record label and a publishing company; pursued side projects in writing, poetry, photography, and graphic design; and overseen their former outfit's archives. Their lives may be cluttered, but their music remains unscathed. As its blissful title suggests, The Earth Is Blue is a soothingly serene sojourn on which celestial harmonies and delicate, spacious arrangements waft through the lovely, lilting "Sometimes," "Araçá Azul," and "Beautiful Close Double." Despite an overly languid cover of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," this is indeed a good Earth overall.
