Psych-rocking space travelers Eternal Tapestry hail from Portland, Oregon, and were founded by Nick Bindeman (Jackie-O Motherfucker) and Dewey Mahood (Plankton Wat), who came together musically around their joint worship of the music of Neu! and guitarist Sonny Sharrock. They were joined in 2006 by Nick's brother Jed (Heavy Winged/Jackie-O Motherfucker). This trio released a number of LPs, CDs, EPs, and even cassettes, including Vibrations, New Dawn, Mystic Induction, and Altar of Grass (all in 2007), and Declining Star and Sea of Silk (in 2008). In 2009, Ryan Carlile joined the band on saxophone and synth; they released The Invisible Landscape, Palace of the Night Skies, The Hidden Revealed (cassette only), and the live CD-R Spring Tour. Bassist Krag Likins joined the group in 2010, and Eternal Tapestry spent time refining their sound and touring that year. Some of the bandmembers participated in other projects as well. Mahood issued the blissed-out space dub album Edibles under his Plankton Wat moniker; he and Jed also collaborated with the members of Barn Owl and recorded the full-length Black Summit as Garden Sound. In addition, Heavy Winged issued Sunspotted and Fields Within Fields in 2010. Eternal Tapestry signed to Chicago's Thrill Jockey in 2010 to record their first album as a quintet, Beyond the 4th Door; it was released in early 2011, and was followed in July of that year by Night Gallery, a collaborative long-player with Sun Araw. Dawn in Two Dimensions was released in June of 2012, while World Out of Time followed in November. Never slowing down in their release schedule, the band spent the next two years offering up limited-edition releases in the form of small run cassettes, such as a split with California dream-tropicalia duo Mondo Lava, as well as tour-only CD-Rs or the extremely limited Guru Overload, a vinyl-only release generating profits for a foundation dedicated to preserving the Borneo Orangutan. Amid all these lower profile releases, the band spent a fair amount of time camped out in a remote cabin in the small town of Zigzag, Oregon tracking tunes for their massive 2015 double album Wild Strawberries. The album saw release early that year, again on Thrill Jockey. ~ Thom Jurek
