"It is brilliant, conjuring stark, cinematic imagery via antiquated lyrical motifs, and a vintage instrumental aesthetic that's paradoxically forward-looking."—Under the Radar
Chicago's Califone return to perform their live soundtrack for All My Friends Are Funeral Singers complete with the feature film made by singer Tim Rutili. Employing an array of sounds oscillating between a vision of broken down machines in the future and a rural past of manual labor, Califone create a hypnotic score—highlighted by bluesy acoustic guitar, plaintive fiddle and banjo, found object percussion, and otherworldly electronics—to enliven the screen images. All Music Guide calls the piece "filled with engagingly warm-sounding tunes mating melodic accessibility with a winning lyrical evanescence powered by poetic dream logic." Califone round out the evening with a set of their innovative rock songs.
