Split Screens – “Born”
July 27, 2012
Written by Russell Jelinek
Split Screens, the solo project of San Francisco session musician Jesse Cafiero, recently released a self-titled EP for streaming on his bandcamp page. This is the first solo release for Cafiero, who has played bass with the likes of Thao Nguyen, John Vanderslice, and Ezra Furman, in addition to playing lap steel and bass for DRMS. The first single off his EP, “Born” can be downloaded for free above, while the rest of the EP is available for streaming until physical copies are ready to be released later this year.
Cafiero’s lap steel is a highlight throughout the album, which has a relaxing, psychadelic feel that would make a great soundtrack for a foggy day. Split Screens plays the Brick and Mortar August 8, opening for Fox & Woman.
