Society of the Silver Cross is led by husband and wife duo Joe Reineke and Karyn Gold-Reineke of Seattle’s famed recording studio Orbit Audio and includes Sebastian Brown Glad on bass and Tim Nurczyk on mellotron and shahi baaja.
Society of the Silver Cross draw inspiration from their many trips to India, it’s rich musical textures, traditional chanting and spiritual wisdom. The core instruments are 12-string acoustic guitar, harmonium, rare and esoteric synthesizers, B3 organ, mellotron, and shahi baaja (Indian autoharp).
Everything about Society of the Silver Cross is heavy with mystery: they lure the listener into their sound, and their world, like ghost lights in a dense forest. Follow, if you dare, and what you’ll discover is a band that has developed a singular style – one that draws from darker, more cinematic moods, textures and cosmic atmospheres resulting in an otherworldly blend of musical bliss.
Seattle band Loose Wing’s sound is a swirling blend of psychedelic Americana and old-school college rock, dark and haunting yet rooted in indie-pop tradition. Songs are written by Claire Tucker, whom you may recognize as guitarist and vocalist from local psychgaze mainstays Black Nite Crash. Claire is joined by her husband Jack Peters (Mindie Lind, Battle Hymns) on bass, and the lineup is filled out by local greats Rusty Willoughby (of Flop, Pure Joy, Cobirds Unite) on drums and Bill Patton (Fleet Foxes, J. Tillman, Gold Leaves) on pedal steel and guitar.
The songs are informed by a broad history of rock fandom and experience as performers. Claire draws songwriting inspiration from Kate Bush, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Low, Beach House, R.E.M., and 60’s girl groups. Loose Wing recently recorded several songs at Seattle studio Crackle & Pop with engineer/producer Johnny Sangster. Their full-length album will be released in early 2019.
