Chris Schlarb
Twilight & Ghost Stories
(Asthmatic Kitty, 2007)

Chris Schlarb’s Twilight & Ghost Stories is possibly the most painterly album on this list. The music feels like it was created by a variety of brushing, smattering, splotching, dragging, clouding and blending. Schlarb has created an accumulated hodge podge of collected sounds stretched, sifted and gorgeously assembled into this singular, jazz-informed collage. Beautiful and heartbreakingly quaint.

I am really pissed I never listened to this, since I am the one who wanted it in the first place. I just sort of forgot about it after you got it and reviewed it first. Now it's on your decade list! I want to murder you.
