'klamath' (decor records) is mark eitzel's first proper solo album of new original material since 2001's 'invisible man' on matador. written and recorded in a log cabin in the middle of the woods - by the klamath river, california. eitzel producing with franz nicolay from the hold steady and marc capelle from american music club and dave douglas (who drums with kelley stoltz) guesting on the album. the pastoral - laid back, late night sparse feel to the album harkens back to eitzel's folk influences of nick drake and john martyn and earlier work with american music club. just prior to american music club's breakup in 1995, eitzel began his solo career in earnest and since then he has released six albums including '60 watt siliver
lining', 'west' with rem's peter buck, 'caught in a trap...' with members of sonic youth and yo la tengo and two albums of cover versions. in 2003, american music club got back together for one of the most anticipated and amazing reunions in ages. their 2004 album, 'love songs for patriots', received widespread critical acclaim as well as the follow up 'the golden age'. in between these albums he released a collection of soundtrack material called 'candy ass'.
