Altered States 03 - Spiral Galaxy

by Spiral Galaxy

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Altered States is a joint label collaboration between Dave Cambridge of Cardinal Fuzz and Mike Mannix of Centripetal Force. Invaluable artistic guidance is provided by Brett Savage (Dead Sea Apes). Each Altered States release comes housed in a risograph printed sleeve and is limited to 100 hand numbered copies.

    Spiral Galaxy hails from Chicago, IL and includes the talents of flautist/ painter Sara Gossett and guitarist/ machines manipulator Steven Krakow (aka Plastic Crimewave). Together they have created devotional sonic voyages and droney soundscapes with the occasional rhythmic pulse to conjure the textural and kosmische vibe of 70s German seekers like Yatha Sidhra, Emtidi, Popul Vuh, Achim Reichel, Sand, and early Kraftwerk. The duo's early live performances quickly set the tone for their future, as they were well noted and received for their meditative drones, captivating mantras, and Eastern influenced experimentation. After producing a handful of cassette recordings of live sets, collaborations, and studio improvisation, Spiral Galaxy released their self titled debut in 2020 on Lion Productions/ Cardinal Fuzz. It was around this time that Sara and Steve visited Rec Room Recording Studios in Chicago to record a set of new compositions, a collection they decided to simply title Live. Initially released digitally by the band and on CDr by Cardinal Fuzz earlier in 2022, Live receives a vinyl release via Altered States.
