    ALL MUSIC: Review by Tim DiGravina

    Ex-Trumans Water spiritual eccentric Glen “Galaxy” Galloway’s “Thank You” is a love letter to his holy Lord. With Galloway at the helm, it’s obvious even before a first listen that the album’s 11 tracks will be lo-fi shambolic affairs. There’s a lot of charm in Galloway’s indie, God-loving project, as kitchen sink-quality production clearly echoes his message of “strength through God, not riches or wisdom.” Most of the songs adhere to the wobbly vibes and beach rock tempos of Galloway’s “Soul Junk” ethic. “Knowledge of the Lord,” for example, sees Galaxy repeatedly intoning how “knowledge of the Lord” should “fill the whole earth, as water covers the sea” over cheap-sounding synth backing, gently strummed acoustic guitars, and off-key harmonizing. Many listeners will probably find the off-key singing and bedroom production values off-putting, but Galloway is obviously more about presenting his holy message. “Thank You” alternates between gentle beach campfire jams and ballads praising the Lord. There’s a poignancy in slow-burner “Mighty Rushing Wind,” a love letter to Galloway’s God. “Thank You” is sometimes funny, occasionally touching, usually fun, and frequently off-key. It’s a release for a niche audience of God-loving lo-fiers, but brimming with spiritual sincerity and conviction.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Thankyou via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
