Wyrd Vibrations – Album Preview
Wyrd Vibrations: Future Sounds of Paganism from Reclaiming Tradition – released Spring 2023 – took root several years ago with a conversation at Mysteries of Samhain witchcamp.
Step Tranovich of Electromancy, a disabled musician, had just produced an album of hard rock played entirely by robots called Technopagan. KMo Valkrie, also at the camp, added ethereal vocals on Electromancy’s debut, and we laughed that this ought to be Reclaiming’s new sound.
About the same time Lali Wilde brought out an album of unique art-pop songs. And Thesmophora recorded a Russian version of Starhawk’s song Snake Woman.
Our joke took on new life. We talked on zoom a couple of times, then put out a call on Reclaiming’s elists. We received so many tracks that we made two albums. (Watch for a new collection of ritual music, Melodic Mystery, later this Spring.)
Here’s a preview of the 15 tracks on Wyrd Vibrations: Future Sounds of Paganism from Reclaiming Tradition.
