After being diagnosed with epilepsy triggered by playing music,  Liza Bec re-trained herself to play by tapping into improvisational techniques found throughout Spiral Dial’s work. “Sunshine Velvet” is a spiritually transcendent work, one that picks up on cues from bands like Spires that in the Sunset Rise / Ka Baird, Cluster and the soundtrack from Valerie and Her Week of Wonders. Full of plodding minimalist bass, trilling woodwind and the track’s name repeated with great import, Spiral Dial turns up the Freak Folk / Kraut dial to 11.
