New Bill Callahan

Here's a new song called "Eid Ma Clack Shaw." When Woke On a Whaleheart first came out, I remember thinking that a happy Smog just doesn't seem quite right. Eventually that album grew on me and I realized that I felt good to know that he felt good. But if this new track is any indication of the rest of the new album, he's back to the depressing nature of the bulk of his work. Although that makes for some great music, it's hard to see (or hear) your heroes in such pain.

In other news, there's a guy at my bridge club that looks exactly like Bill Callahan in 30 years.
