Lilac Chaser is an instrumental downtempo soundtrack to human sensory perception, and our attempts to map what is real. At times playful and sly, nostalgic and dangerous, Lilac Chaser blurs the line between between our senses and our surroundings -- our struggle to make sense of a vivid and complex material reality.
This album is for those who have followed the imagined cinematic journey that began in the dusty hills with “Warm Blooded Lizard” and contorted through the lens with “Convex.” Several of the songs revisit characters and places explored in songs like “Lesser Known Good,” “Come Back,” “Tall Talk,” and “Shortlife.”
