New Single Out - Artificial Sweat

This crazy drought/heatwave in Indiana has
inspired a new track called "Artificial Sweat".
(It has sexy cover art)

Download it for free!

Thanks again to everyone who has been supporting me 
by checking out Atlantic Downs.

If you haven't listened to it, get on that:

If you already have, let a friend know about the album or just burn them a copy.

Take care,

Greetings from…ATLANTIC DOWNS


Out of the depths of the digital ocean, the mercurial sound of Spirit Spine has formed into a fourth album titled ATLANTIC DOWNS. Taking influence from electronic standbys (Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, and New Order) to contemporary producers (Clams Casino, Flying Lotus, and Zomby), ATLANTIC DOWNS engulfs the listener in a shroud of liquid noise. Samples of Italian horror films, ghostly wails/whales, and late night nostalgia swim in the stereo field of ATLANTIC DOWNS. Dripping drones, twisted rhythms and submarine-level bass rumble through a sea of trembling synthesizers in the world of ATLANTIC DOWNS.

Assembled under the weight of the future unknown, ATLANTIC DOWNS captures the strange confusion of racing to exist in a dark and cloudy age where nothing is permanent and everything is drifting away.

More Progress

Vocals have been recorded for all but 3 songs.
(It's finals week right now, so those will slowly get recorded.)

Then I'll need to mix the vocals with the music and make sure everything sounds good.

Then the album will be mastered.

Then I'll put the album out :D

So that's what going on with the new album right now.

Thanks for waiting.

Progress (LP4)

Working on the album...

Roughly ten songs chosen.

Songs being augmented.

Vocals need to be recorded.

Album art is completed.

Album title is selected.

It will be finished before April.

No specific release date yet.

I don't want to give away anything that might ruin your expectations of the album, but I will say that I don't think it sounds like any album I've made before. I considered releasing it under a different name. 

Thank you for being patient.

Spirit Tape Ten (The Last One!)

Spirit Tape Ten by spiritspine

Click the arrow in the player to download.


1. The Strangest Secret Intro by Earl Nightingale

2. Do Your Best by John Maus

3. Isis by Yeah Yeah Yeahs

4. Horses by Dirty Beaches

5. Back Seat '38 Dodge by Opus 1

6. Read Stuff That Is Not Baptized At by Jonny Greenwood

7. Haikuesque (When She Laughs) by Bibio

8. Xtal by Aphex Twin

9. All I Need by Clams Casino

10. Ebudae (Lo-Fi Remix) by Enya

11. Dub on Fire by The African Brothers

I think this might be the most cohesive mix I've ever made. Many of the tracks have had effects put on them so that they blend in well with each other. I re-mastered the Dirty Beaches song to give it a fuller, slightly more echo-y sound. I'm really happy with the way the Enya song turned out.

And if you haven't listened to Glossolalia yet, then you are behind the curve my friend:

Spread/Hide/Distribute GLOSSOLALIA


So I have roughly 150 0 (all out! thank you to everyone who took some!) of these little card-sized ads for Glossolalia that I've been hiding in record stores, magazines, places I've traveled to, etc. They each have a different cut-up section of the album cover on them.

However, there are only so many cards I can hide myself (cuz I don't travel too far too often) which is why I'd be really thankful if YOU would like to take and hide a few somewhere.

Just email me your address (my email is in the banner at the top) and how many you want (minimum of 5 please) and I'll send some to you! Postage and all that jazz is on me, you just gotta make sure you put the cards some place where they'll (one day) be found. You can keep one or two if you'd like to also...

Some ideas of places to hide them include:

  • Record stores
  • Your favorite music magazine
  • Book stores
  • etc.

Thanks again for all of your support,
