Outer Spaces A Shedding Snake on LP

The genesis of A Shedding Snake can be traced back to the solo ventures of Cara Beth Satalino in the mid to late 2000s while she attended SUNY Purchase. Satalino's somber, solitary songwriter aesthetic was later informed by her tenure playing in the Athens, Georgia based rough-around-the-edges power trio Witches until they disbanded in 2012.

Following the break up, Satalino's focus was directed back toward her solo material, and what would become Outer Spaces. Relocating to the artistically fertile city of Baltimore, Satalino formed a solid lineup for the group, including fellow Purchase College alums Chester Gwazda – who had previously produced Satalino's solo recordings, as well as albums by Future Islands, Cloud Nothings and Dan Deacon. The band had the opportunity to participate in the Matador Records Singles Going Home Alone 7" series, and released the Garbage Beach EP via Salinas Records in 2014.

A Shedding Snake is Outer Space's debut full-length effort. The album is one of transition for Satalino. Some of the material was composed back when she lived in Athens and, stylistically, it shows: there's some definite Murmur-era Michael Stipe and Peter Buck influence in aesthetic and songwriting. But Satalino bridges the gap from what's in her rear-view to her present. 

"Moving to a new place is a chance for a clean slate in a way, and I think that the songs on this record reflect that feeling," she says. "It's a record about moving on, moving past, moving forward, and moving toward."
