Glossolalia by Spirit Spine

Glossolalia by Spirit Spine April 28, 2011

One of our regular readers here is Joseph Denney, who is a musician recording under the name “Spirit Spine.” He has produced a new album titled Glossolalia, which he has dedicated to James Randi. According to his press release:

The album follows the story of a preacher traveling by airplane who crashes into the desert, leaving him the only survivor. As a result, the preacher must wander the desert in search of food, water, and civilization. Along the way he questions the religion that brought him there and the God who may, or may not, exist.

You can sample Glossolalia at Spirit Spine’s Bandcamp page or his Soundcloud page. I’m horrible at labeling music genres (everything I grew up with was classified as “folk,” which is not helpful) so I’ll let Joseph describe his own work:

Glossolalia wraps the listener in a heat-warped haze of bending guitars, hypnotic drumming and chant-like vocals that draws on influences like Grouper, My Bloody Valentine, Boards of Canada, Bruce Springsteen’s “Nebraska”, and the Smithsonian Anthology of American Folk Music.
