Galaxxu's music can best be summed up with this Sonny Sharrock quote: "I’ve been trying to find a way for the terror and the beauty to live together in one song. I know it’s possible." Galaxxu draws inspiration from Chicago's incredible free jazz and indie scenes of the past and present, European free improv, and electronic noise to create spontaneous compositions that range from quiet, delicate serenity to an abrasive, pedal-to-the-floor assault.
Galaxxu is currently finishing mixing for several upcoming releases and planning a couple of tours in summer and fall of 2017.
'Bureaucracy 5-8 YOLD 3182' was a 2 song, 20 minute tape that was made for a midwest tour in August 2016. The first side/track, A Tisket, A Trifle, A Flittering Flutter gives us a glimpse into the more subdued side of Galaxxu. At times yearning a soulful, but still operating within the realm of their improvised chaos. Side 2 ("Match This Step, Then Repeat"), gives us more of the full on assault Galaxxu is typically known for before coming to a conclusion in a passage of dreamy, fluttering interactions from the band.

Fake Designers is a Post Rock instrumental project from Mexico City.
The band creates instrumental songs that, suddenly, at any moment, pass from completely quite moments to energetic and loud moments. There is no more intention in their sound than letting the listener to create his/her own stories or images by itself, without the needing of a lyric to drive their thinking. It is because of these features that the audience and media have called them "Mesmerizing music creators, fake ideas designers".
