Twilight and Ghost Stories is an aptly eerie title for Long Beach, CA-based Chris Schlarb‘s debut solo album. Sound clips–contributed by the likes of Black Mountain’s Stephen McBean, Asthmatic Kitty founder Sufjan Stevens, Triptych Myth’s Tom Abbs, and more–of pianos, clarinets, children screaming, and in-womb heartbeats explore a multitude of themes, many of them reflecting the recent losses and gains in Schlarb’s own life.
