Until The Wild Fire Becomes Paradise:

Brawny lyricism, the vital romance of rock & roll, and a cinematic landscape swept through speakers - Until The Wild Fire Becomes Paradise is Jake Klar’s third release and first full length album, driven all-night into a psychedelic collage of modern America, it dances in a smokey basement noir with an array of characters whose hearts lay on the astral line.

Until The Wild Fire was written in the journals kept during a two year & two month expedition for images and stories of a modern American humanity. From the British Columbia coast down to Los Angeles on a greyhound, out to Austin, crosstown to Brooklyn and hazy in Buenos Aires.

Recorded by Andy Cass at Sleepercave studios in Easthampton, MA during January and February 2017. Produced by Karl Helander. The band consists of Jake (guitar and vocals), Max Wareham (Bass), Joel Helander (keys), Karl Helander (drums),

Max Wareham's voice is always about to break, warbling and true. He cut his teeth studying jazz at conservatory, but now polishes them digging holes on a horse farm. Known primarily as bassist in psychedelic-pop-rock band Sun Parade, and contributing songwriter to studio-collective Cousin Moon, his solo work is influenced by British folk music, early country music, astronauts, ancestors, deep-sea divers, and Medieval English poetry.

His debut release, simultaneously an album (Good News) and an EP (Rosie) feature fingerstyle guitar woven into tapestries of lo-fi chamber orchestra- bassoons churning, pump organs sitting, sparse and spare. The gentle vocals are a down pillow of memory and longing, the songs winding in wordplay, sincere and sentimental, sometimes silly. His music rings to an old tune with new words, deja vu, and the warm moments in cold seasons. Both recordings are to be released Friday, November 3rd, 2017.
