    Psychic Temple, led by band/cult leader Chris Schlarb and featuring Mike Watt (Minutemen), Sheridan Riley (Avi Buffalo), Paul Masvidal (Cynic, Death), jazz trumpeter Kris Tiner and more, has reimagined Brian Eno's 1979 ambient landmark Music For Airports. The group's own version of "Music for Airports 1/1" was recorded in one afternoon, live in the studio without headphones, overdubs, edits or effects.

    The album's flip side features the fiery original "Music for Bus Stops," conceived as a working class commentary on Eno's preferred method of transportation.

    From Greg Burk’s liner notes: "Psychic Temple approaches Airports from a fresh angle, rescuing it from its 'dark, boring fate' of becoming a museum piece to be analyzed by select musicians inside expensive concert halls. Where Eno's distant, static masterpiece doesn't seem to fit the real-life chaos of what goes on in an airport, Psychic Temple's version adds a human touch and a dose of reality, showing that we're all in it together, we can make room for one another, and we're calm."
