Judson Claiborne Sets April Release
The distant melancholy familiar to listeners of Low Skies (Judson's previous band) has grown into emerging layers of song in the tradition of troubadours, journeymen, country-western stars and master-less wanderers.
Time and Temperature is the finest blend of indie folk with progressive abandon, as the ghosts of the Great Ones smile down on Judson Claiborne with a nod and a wink.
Time and Temperature began in the summer of '08 and was finished by spring of '09 in the band's hometown of Chicago, IL. They worked at Carterco Recording (drummer Jamie Carter's studio) and at Soma EMS (John McEntire's studio) with engineer Tim Iseler (Wilco, Iron and Wine, The Swell Season) at the helm.
Ronnie Kuller and Jeff Thomas, both of the infamous circus punk marching band, Mucca Pazza, make substantial contributions to the songs. Jeff wrote and conducted the horn and string arrangements while Ronnie played violin and sang harmony throughout the record. The album features a cover of "The Woman Inside of Me" by New Zealand singer/songwriter Chris Knox.
