The Satyrswitch is the acoustic-oriented project of Minneapolis musician Jason Kesselring, who has also been in the groups Skye Klad and Blitzen. Although occasionally other musicians are used on the Satyrswitch's first album, 2004's The High Lonesome Sound of the Satyrswitch, much of the material features Kesselring alone on acoustic guitar and vocals. The record is haunting folk with an occasional acid folk bent, enhanced by the use of some chord organ and keyboard sitar.
