Possibly the strongest progressive roots album released in 2022. No embellishments or story telling, just raw emotion and honesty sung with gusto and grit. Inspired by a swirl of Rock 'n Roll, Blues, Country, Soul and Punk Rock, it's dynamic and powerful from start to finish. If you've been searching for music with genuine trial by fire perspective you've landed on the right page. Alexander Craig draws from emotions based on real experiences with passion and authenticity on this self titled debut.
Five tracks from this 14 song release can be heard on streaming sites. Limited copies of this album are available in a gate-fold jacket featuring olympic white vinyl and a 30 page booklet with artwork and lyrics for each song.
Available in the online store, these three designs were created by three illustrators: Lizardman, Tiffany Smith and Dwitt. Each design was inspired by lyrics from the song "Atmosphere We're Under." Available in uni-sex and ladies cuts on this site or at live performances. Continuing on with the Crankshaft tradition these short run prints will not be re-pressed, boogie!
