‘Appetites’ follows ‘Dozens’, the first song to be released from the record, and sees Schuster-Craig joined on vocals by friend and collaborator Julia Holter. Fans of Holter’s work and also that of Noah Lennox, Bradford Cox and Schuster-Craig’s cited influences such as Lyndsay Buckingham and Roy Orbison should find much to love in the acid-country pop of ‘Appetites’ and indeed the entirety of Teaspoon To The Ocean.
Jib Kidder is the performing moniker of musician and artist Sean Schuster-Craig.
Born in Louisville, raised in Georgia, educated in Michigan and bouncing between California and New York ever since, he has spent the last decade exploring a variety of approaches to psychedelic collage. In his audio recordings, songs, videos, sculptures, digital paintings, chalk murals & written work he has attempted to harness the humour and ambiguous poignancy specific to the experience of dreaming.

The latest addition to Schuster-Craig’s unique and under-exposed body of work comes in the form of Teaspoon To The Ocean, his debut album for Weird World, which will be released on January 27, 2015. The eleven acid-country pop songs of Teaspoon…combine the cut-up lyrical style of avant-garde literary great Gertrude Stein with influences ranging from Lindsay Buckingham’s solo material to Meat Puppets by way of Orbison, Gary Numan and Indonesian Campursari and Vietnamese slide guitar playing.
