"San Francisco's The Spiral Electric is a psych-rock group with an acid-drenched
sound that creeps and crawls into the recesses of your mind where it stays with
you, kinda like those fuzzy college memories of when shit got weird. Much like the
band's predecessor, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Spiral Electric's songs are
hypnotic and build into a crescendo of sound. Lead vocalist Clay Andrews lends the
band a distinct sound with his strong, clear voice and impressive range, anchored
by synths, electric guitar riffs, and steady drumming." Madeleine Key,
East Bay Express
"The Spiral Electric‘s
sound can be captivatingly dramatic; each piece is colorful in a black-light acid-trip
sort of way, and reveals new and interesting moments with each and every listen.
Their songs creep in and out of the faintest trickles of sound, leading your mind
into a sort of kaleidoscopic rabbit hole. One feels the climax(es) approach from
several measures down the road over large instrumental sections; inevitable, yet
lurking, each hurdle more hypnotic than the last, as spacey synth sounds, electric
guitars, and hauntingly distant vocals lure the listener into new, far-out worlds.
There is a retro jam-band, Verve-era indie flavor to The Spiral Electric. Their songs
sound best live, like mini-acid trips at an incredible outdoor concert in the heat
of summer, each track a complete introspective experience in their own right." Andrew
James, The Process Records Magazine
