When the sun goes behind the trees When I know all the names of the birds that sing When I learn to forget the past I've carried all this time Can I make every good thing last Or will I lose my mind? When the moon goes behind the clouds, When I know why the dogs bark at every sound When I learn to forget the past I've carried all this time Can I make every good thing last Or will I lose my mind? Call me out Don't let me go Teach me truth I'll never know

I was gone I was on my own In this world Like a rollin' stone Come rain or shine Come day or night Come wrong or right Come home to me So I ride Until I hear your voice Call me home I never had a choice Come rain or shine Come day or night Come wrong or right Come home to me

about

Vinyl and CD editions available via Amazon and Asthmatic Kitty.

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'.

Culled from sessions recorded at home in Los Angeles and the legendary FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama - 'III' includes contributions and performances from Spooner Oldham (Neil Young, Bob Dylan), David Hood (J.J. Cale, Aretha Franklin), Mike Watt (Minutemen, The Stooges), Avi Buffalo, Nedelle Torrisi (Sufjan Stevens), Elliot Bergman (Wild Belle, NOMO), Dave Easley (Brian Blade Fellowship) and many more. Coming together quickly and intuitively, the album was mixed over three days with Ronan Chris Murphy (King Crimson).
