Jagged Glacial Spires is an album from my ambient-electronic group, the Midwest Hackers.  This particular album addresses desire and the emotions that come with it. Using layers of programmed percussion and ambient textures, it is a work that honors both the euphoric pleasure of sex, as well as, the longing of unrequited lust. The album contains ethereal washes of sound through the pairing of field recordings and synthesized textures.

The album artwork that is displayed serves as a visual representation of the ever changing and inspirational nature of desire.

Jagged Glacial Spires is set to be released on October 16th as a deluxe double vinyl LP and digital download.
