New solo album from the singer/songwriter also known for his work with Smog. In the song-world of Bill Callahan, the present realities tumble ecstatically like cloth in the wind – sheets and flags and clothes. Bill’s a cartographer way out there, tracing the coastlines, telling the tales he has discovered along the way. Some seen in life and others in mind’s eye, they float down “Dream River” with humble eminence. The plainspoken flies with the poetic in these songs, along with the sudden jolt of something you might remember: we call it laughter.
