Chris Schlarb – Psychic Temple


[ Asthmatic Kitty, 2010 ]

Long Beach based composer Chris Shlarb leads the collective of jazz musicians also known as Psychic Temple. Their self-titled debut album shows the unique oceangazing sound, a slow, ambiental deconstruction of free jazz which pulses gently and slowly and feels like a result of cross-polination of Brian Eno and Tortoise. It’s spacious and expansive, and feels like a mild psychedelic high. Sun Ra would be proud. Recommended!

There is a brand new album entitled III which is coming out May 6th. You can also check out other works by Chris Schlarb on his Bandcamp page.
