Spirit Spine is the home-recorded journey through the outsider sounds of psychedelia, kraut rock, ambient music, minimalism, and dream pop. The sounds on "Ocean of Sand" sort of remind me of Parts & Labor's previous album Receivers, but this project's influences run much deeper than that--just look at them listed on bandcamp.
And though the sounds on this LP may jump around a bit, the storyline is pretty consistent. The only member of Spirit Spine explains via e-mail:
"The album was conceived as a kind of narrative soundtrack to an imaginary film about a preacher whose airplane crashes in the desert where he must wander seeking civilization. "Ocean of Sand" is the part of the story when the preacher crashes into the desert."
