Chris Schlarb - 'Dropsy' Soundtrack

Guitarist/composer/cult leader Chris Schlarb makes great music. The work that he has done over the years with his band, Psychic Temple, have melded jazz, rock, and noise influences together into some new creation that is wholly engrossing. One of the latest of Schlarb's numerous projects is a soundtrack he put together for his friend Jay Tholen's new video game, Dropsy (out next Thursday on Steam), which is what he describes as essentially a new Psychic Temple album (though not to supplant the upcoming Psychic Temple III which is still somewhere around the bend). What results is what Schlarb describes as the "jazziest" thing he's ever done.
