The debut album ~ "The Cyborg Project" ~ very much set the stage for the thematic sensibility of all Galactic Witchcraft recordings: A call to Deprogram from the social constructions that conspire all around us to control our tastes, our impulses, and what we think are our desires. The purpose of this Cyborg Project is actually to Humanize: to connect to the Cosmos & our own power within it, to manifest the Reality Dynamics of our choosing, using the electronic world we live in to facilitate a flourishing of our highest capacities and sensibilities, rather than being turned off, into a mechanized life form, where we become alien to our senses, and dictated to by the machines we've created.
The follow-up album, "Strange Birds" further explores the need for a conscious investment in strengthening your wacky personal strangeness and otherness, to unearth your unique aptitudes and authentic flight patterns. Being a follower is deadly dull, but it's also deadly period, for a species that must evolve to earn its right to exist, which requires a rejection of the 'thought police' of group thinking, and embracing instead the mindfulness of distinct individuation. And that takes balls... great big cosmic planetary balls!
"Small Craft Advisories" then took the furthest leap yet in featuring the auralsonic interplay of elements to drive these sound messages to their fullest expression, magnifying the small advisements of Stavo Craft (on a number of dizzying matters!) into larger scale. Modern surveillance, the naturalness of the artificial, television brainwash, social media follies, holographic principles of personal reality, the pin-up fantasies of projection, and yes, even concepts of god as a pattern, are explored with aplomb and delivered with radical advisements sure to titillate even the dullest listener.
January 11, 2018 saw the release of "Fabric Statements" which was created as an Introduction to New Audiences of the Galactic Witchcraft experience, combining essentially the previous 2 albums which were recorded within 6 months of each other, remastered and remixed into one record. This was conjured by Future Room Records to reach New Audiences, as well as to be played in Other Worlds beyond our skies. “Fabric Statements” was recognized as the runner-up for Best Pop Album of the Year at the 2018 New Mexico Music Awards.
Galactic Witchcraft's 5th release on Future Room Records arrived from the heavens in Spring 2021. Entitled "It Came From The Skies!!!", this was the most independent album since Stavo Craft's one-man band cassette recordings. Taking charge on all production and full mixing, as well as being the only player on 4 of 8 tracks, this is a dynamic collection of eight songs, with perhaps the most fully ornate production yet, while still maintaining a strict DIY method and sound.
