Chicago band Judson Claiborne shows melancholy streak on second album

His former band Low Skies was once described as “Midwestern Zoloft rock,” and singer, songwriter and guitarist Christopher C. Salveter doesn’t stray too far from the downbeat aesthetic in his new group, Judson Claiborne.

The band self-released its first album, “Before Midnight Scholar,” in 2008 before signing to La Société Expéditionnaire for “Time and Temperature,” which is due April 6.

Salveter populates his songs with vivid characters, including spies, bartenders, students and artists, and the record includes contributions from members of punk-rock marching band Mucca Pazza.
