Judson Claiborne is the solo and band name of Low Skies frontman Christopher C. Salveter. Chicago’s Low Skies put out their last album in 2006, just before the band went on hiatus. Salveter still writes weary, melancholy songs, but inside a more intimate space, employing acoustic guitars and horns where he used to use crashing guitars and echo. You can hear all that in Time And Temperature opener “Twilight Spirit”‘s cozy textures and harmonies. The video was directed by Chicago artist Jodie Mack, and, like the song, it’s based on the visions of David Morehouse, a former “psychic spy” for the CIA.
Time And Temperature is out 4/6 via La Société Expéditionnaire.
