JASON W. WALTON - Agalloch Bassist To Unleash Solo Seven-Inch Later This Month

Agalloch bassist and Self Spiller mastermind, Jason W. Walton, has been creating surreal and otherworldly soundscapes for over twenty years. In the 90s he began working under the name Nothing and released four full-length albums and various EPs and singles. He performed live as Nothing in the Midwest and the West Coast before retiring the name in 2003. Walton remained busy with other musical endeavors knowing that a return to ambient noise was imminent.
In the summer of 2013, Walton began the songwriting process again by collecting field recordings from places he would visit. He captured the din of humanity on the downtown Portland streets, the rush of ocean waves in Southern California, and the mysteriously comforting monologues emanating from an AM radio. During mid-2014, Walton manipulated and processed these sounds into disturbingly haunting pieces which would become the basis of his soon-to-be released Mara seven-inch. Walton decided to thematically compose these songs around his struggle with sleep paralysis - a phenomenon in which a person, either falling asleep or awakening, temporarily experiences an inability to move, speak, and react. While creating these tracks he deprived himself of sleep and recounted his episodes of sleep paralysis within the two tracks contained in Mara. During episodes of sleep paralysis, Walton sometimes feels like he has some kind of spiritual connection or "visit" from lost loved ones.
Shortly after track one, "Alp", was completed, Walton suddenly lost his stepfather. A few months later, after track two, "Yakshi", was finished, Walton's dear friend and former Metal Maniacs editor, Katherine Ludwig, passed away. Although these two songs are not about these people, they are wholeheartedly dedicated to them making this an intensely personal work.
Mara was recorded at Earth in Sound Studios Portland, Oregon with vocals on "Yakshi" performed by Tanner Anderson (Obsequiae, Celestiial) and recorded at HammerHeart Brewing Company in Lino Lakes, Minnesota. Mara was mastered by James Plotkin (OLD, Scorn, Khanate, Khlyst) with design and layout by Agalloch's John Haughm. Mara will be unleashed on 21st June via Red Orchard Records on limited edition (300) seven-inch black vinyl housed in a deluxe black arigato sleeve featuring silver debossed artwork. Pre-orders available at this location. Link
