Joseph Shabason

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to Joseph Shabason, a Canadian multi-instrumentalist. He’s recorded saxophone with Destroyer and The War on Drugs, and as a solo artist he’s released several interesting jazz/ambient albums, which we’re playing today. First up is 2019’s Muldrew, a collaboration with Ben Gunning, which features spare tracks with ghostly chords that come and go. Next is Shabason’s 2017 debut, Aytche, which has a fuller sound, layering deconstructed jazz over ambient chords (with the occasional massively distorted guitar). Last is 2018’s Anne which is farther out in left-field and has some vocals.
