Need a gift for a gifted musician?
The Sunward Spike began when Stephen O’Connell and David Krah released their self-recorded and eponymous CD in 2005 followed by the well received E.P. “Purslane and Nightshade”in 2008.
They have toured the west coast several times in support of these releases, playing shows in all sorts of venues and circumstances. In 2008 multi-instrumentalist Sean Hagen joined the group contributing all sorts of beats, bass, and delirious synths.
With unique sounds, not shoegaze, not noise, not rock n roll… not really electronic, not standard, not much guitar. Not trying to be like anything else… a kind of psych-pop-palace is being built in various San Francisco and Oakland studios.
The Sunward Spike are currently performing in support of their latest release, Well Pumped Drips.
