When I started out on Out of Season, I wanted to make an album that was as collaborative as I possibly could. The result is an album that features a plethora of incredibly talented guests (29 guests to be exact), including Jenny Conlee (The Decembrists), Kyleen King (The Decembrists), Hamilton Berry (Vampire Weekend) and Paul Cartwright (Father John Misty) to name just a few. It features everything from strings, horns, synths to ondes Martinot.

Out of Season is a tribute to all of the incredibly talented musicians I've had the privilege to work with. - Chris

Historian Los Angeles, California

HISTORIAN is the brainchild of Chris Karman. Somewhere between post-rock and Kid A. It's spacey rock that won't leave you with that awkward feeling of visiting an abstract art installation you just don't get. He writes songs that have mass appeal with a nod to the avant-garde. ... more
