One of the Pacific Northwest’s hidden societies, GEIST & THE SACRED ENSEMBLE forge a doom - inflected folk ritualism; dirges tinged with Eastern psychedelia and meandering meditative trances.
For the last several years, the group has shown the Washington state underground a clear vision for their sound and lyrics – creating a shamanistic space for the listener, placing them into a trance, then building up the excitement.The overarching theme of their lyrical work is that of an idealist, a yearning for an end to the modern human condition, for destruction of the constructs & constraints of oppression. The group has appeared many times at Thirst For Light and on Hollow Earth Radio. GEIST & THE SACRED ENSEMBLE bring their hypnotic and emotionally charged live show to a wider audience this spring with a West Coast tour.

For this occasion, Scry Recordings is releasing DIG IN SESSIONS: III (a cassette with two musical hypnosis sessions from the vault) recorded by the group and mastered by MS Waldron (Nurse With Wound, irr.app.ext).

Regarding this series, the band comments:

“What is that, you ask? Over the years (2012-present) we have recorded most of our practices. Sometimes, practice turns into improvised playing and listening which we call "DIGS". We say DIGS
because whether you're digging a hole or creating music in the moment, it is the terrain that dictates the approach. The dig could
become a foundation for something bigger than itself or covered up and forgotten. We want to share a side of our sound that you may not always hear.”
