New album Lathe by Galaxxu

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. 

Chicago’s Galaxxu is excited to announce a super-limited edition seven inch lathe cut, featuring artwork by Alex Dycylyxyvyi. The two sides reflect the terror and the beauty the quartet tries to capture in their free improvisations. Side A starts off innocently enough, until devolving into a mess of disjointed interplay between a sax crying out, and a guitar that is seemingly being torn apart at the atomic level. Suddenly, the drums offer a rallying cry and Galaxxu breaks out into a wall of furious noise. Side B offers a glimpse into the more subdued side of Galaxxu. At times even soulful, albeit still operating within the confines of their chaotic take on free improvisation, it ends things in a dreamy sequence as if the Galaxxians are surveying the damage they wrought on Side A. 

Track List


  • A Tisket, A Trifle, A Flittering Flutter [Stereo Edit] - 05:22 info 
  • Horse Battery Staple [Stereo Edit] - 05:00

'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.

Track List


A Tisket, A Trifle, A Flittering Flutter - 09:49
Match This Step, Then Repeat - 09:53


Genre : experimental, free, improvisation, jazz, noise

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
