*VINYL PRE-ORDER IS LIVE*
"Planet Caravan" might be my favorite Black Sabbath song. I've had periods of time where I just put the tune on repeat for hours and lost myself in its two chords and Leslie'd vocal melody. At some point during the pandemic I found myself itching to get back into the studio with everyone and cut a new, extended arrangement. On October 24th, 2021, we recorded our version of “Planet Caravan” as well as a new track I wrote called, "Essaouira". I have to express my gratitude for all the musicians on this record: Tabor Allen and Ben Lumsdaine on drums, Billy Mohler on double bass, Isaiah Morfin and Alex Sadnik on alto saxophones, Heather Sommerhauser on Prophet 10, and Jeff Parker (and myself) on electric guitars. Lars Gotrich provides the liner notes.
The other big news today is that Psychic Temple Plays Music For Airports is finally back in print for the first time in almost seven years. Featuring all new artwork by David J. Woodruff and additional color photos from the recording session, this new pressing should give everyone an affordable option to the $150 asking price on the used market for the original JNR188 edition. Vinyl ships in October. Bandcamp link in bio.
