Chris Schlarb & Psychic Temple

Chris Schlarb

Asthmatic Kitty recording artist Psychic Temple returns to the Valley with all the experimentation and exploration of their subsequent releases and some new material that expands into the realm of more cohesive song structures. You can tease a couple tracks off their upcoming album online here. The new sound incorporates a bit of that classic americana rock n roll sound, reminiscent of Graham Parsons and the Byrds, with a tasteful use of some 70s pop/jazz like progressions and enough Big Star power pop to get you moving. Put in the context of newer artists, Psychic Temple can hold their own along with artists like Father John Misty, Phosphorescent, Fleet Foxes and Devendra Banhart.


Lil Bobby Carlson and the Horsey House Band & Friends
CD & Cassette Release Show
with Gene Tripp & Wanda June

at Stinkweeds Records
Friday May 27th – 8PM

Moone Records (Phoenix) and Emotional Response (Flagstaff) have teamed up on the release of Lil Bobby Jr and The Horsey House Band & Friends‘ We Don’t Belong Together. This album is a collaboration of a “who’s who” of Arizona dreamy, twangy and delightfully bummed out players. The result is a cavernous desert sound full of big, slow and low guitar strums, reverb drenched pedal steel guitar and weepy, haunting voices, singing wistful songs of cowboys in existential crisis. Collaborators include members of Cherie Cherie, Giant Sand, Christian Family, Gene Tripp & Roar, with Lonna Kelley, Jay Huffman, Matt Wiser, Ann Seletos and Owen Evans adding that Phoenix touch to this Tucson artist.

Gene Tripp and Wanda June will be joined by members of the Horsey House band as well as members of Bear State and Cherie Cherie.
