Heart Lung is the musical gestalt of guitarist Chris Schlarb and drummer Tom Steck. Formed in 2004, the group’s first live performance was alongside true-school rockers The Pink Mountaintops at Koo’s in Long Beach, CA.
In 2005 they toured the U.S. on the Oort Cloud BBQ/Sainthood Now! bill with Castanets and Wooden Wand & The Vanishing Voice. The duo celebrated with a marbled-vinyl split 12″ featuring three new compositions on one side and two extended improvisations by Castanets on the other. After returning from the road I Heart Lung were featured alongside HEALTH, Abe Vigoda and No Age in the documentary film 40 BANDS/80 MINUTES!
In 2008 the group will release Interoceans on Asthmatic Kitty Records. A four song, forty-plus minute drone opera (sans vocals), the album features collaborations with Nels Cline, Kris Tiner, Aaron Ximm, Lynn Johnston and pedal steel guitar virtuoso Dave Easley.
