Four years after his first full length debut, experimental singer-songwriter Caspar Sonnet brings forth an album of hungry ghosts. Kahlotus (native American word meaning “hole in the ground”) is a collection of unusual songs of redemption, revenge, rebirth, phantasms and sorcery.
Sonnet's disjointed, loopy acoustic lap-steel, minimalist percussion and avant-bluesy vocals, bellows over a forsaken prairie where there are no rules, only malevolent, echoic patterns and fetching melodies, rolling into the distance. Recorded in Joshua Tree, this record contains it's own, unique story reflecting both a sense of peril and wonder.
