Psychic Temple III Limited Vinyl LP

Psychic Temple III is a folk pop masterpiece, the culmination of years of failures and experiments. It is as honest and true a musical statement as Chris Schlarb could possibly make. It exists free of guile and corporate control. III is the obsessive, colorful work of an auteur who spent years playing to a handful of hardcore followers. Psychic Temple III completes the transition from avant-jazz solo project to a working band constructed around timeless songs that draw upon the rich history of classic American soul, blues, and folk. Equally immersed in the sound of California's canyons and the swamps of the deep South, Psychic Temple's cult leader/guitarist Chris Schlarb steps out of the shadows and up to the microphone for the first time with astonishing results. Maintaining Psychic Temple's affinity for nuance and delicate minimalism, 'III' exhibits a new directness centered around Schlarb's agile guiding voice. While the album places his unfolding vocal melodies and narratives in the foreground, 'III' subverts easy categorization by sustaining the collaborative, exploratory spirit of 'Psychic Temple' and 'II'.
