Here’s Asthmatic Kitty’s Chris Schlarb (via press release) on his new album Making the Saint. “[Making the Saint] was recorded inside a wooden cabin in the San Bernardino mountains of California. The owners told me to keep an eye out for ghosts. They said my electric guitar would resonate inside the 140-year old walls like a giant amplifier [...] Making The Saint is a spiritual retreat; a healthy and necessary separation after so many collaborations[...] I forced myself into solitude in order to find something new.” The four-track late May release is a quiet exploration of the intersection between ambient jazz and folk.
