cannot find much or really any discussion of either 'woke on a whaleheart' or 'sometimes i wish i were an eagle.'

i get the distinct feeling that tastemakers have decided he is passé. his lyrics are definitely getting odder, insofar as they seem to alternate absolute limpidity (faith/void) and near-total inscrutability. not obscurantist inscrutability à la dylan, just... elliptical.

but i really like the last record, 'sometimes.' 'whaleheart' is spotty -- the neil hagerty production isn't my favorite.

Yeah, Whaleheart is definitely the Callahan album I listen to the least--you are OTM about the production making Callahan sound like something he's not, all muddled and distracted. I couldn't pick one song off there that I really dig.

Sometimes isn't bad at all. It sounds like a continuation from River. "All Thoughts Are Prey To Some Beast" is a great tune.

the who cares (okamax), Sunday, 9 August 2009 18:10 (nine years ago) Permalink

I really, really like both of these albums.

'day' 'diamond dancer' 'a man needs a woman or a man to be a man' are all GRATE - I don't get the whaleheart hate.

iatee, Sunday, 9 August 2009 18:38 (nine years ago) Permalink

Oh yeah, forgot that Diamond Dancer was on Whaleheart. Still definitely better live than not, though.

Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle is top 3 for 2009 easy for me - I don't think "tastemakers" (who are they?) have decided he's passe so much as you sort of run out of things to say about somebody who reliably writes good, interesting songs. This is kind of a deeper critical problem in my opinion, not an easy one to solve: unless an artist reaches icon status (Dylan, Neil Young) & is thereby afforded automatic coverage by all when they release something, then critics (on the blogs or otherwise) are going to feel at a loss to say much; people don't really do much lyrical analysis, even less melodic/musical analysis since the gonzo sort of how-I-felt-while-listening/synaesthetic-response style of criticism is the overall rule. I am trying not to say anything qualitatively about whether that's good or bad, though yeah, my opinion is that writers like Callahan would be better served by a tendency in critics toward more formal analysis (which needn't be as dry as it sounds) and away from, you know, purple prose tbh

as guilty as the next guy on the Tyranny of Subjective Response obv but that's my opinion on why this guy doing some of the best work of his career can't seem to attract much att'n

I've gone back and forth on this album. I'm fond of "My Friend" and "All Thoughts..." Some of the other song-poems sound melodically uninteresting, and that's when his croak bothers me.

I actually think that formally as a singer he's like leagues ahead of pretty much his entire generation of singer-songwriters

Really like the last two and I Wish We Were An Eagle is prob the better of the two, but not by miles.

It's top 3 for me too. and my most fave cover of teh year too

J0hn OTM; I liked Whaleheart and love Eagle (have never really heard much by him before) but if I was still writing I'd not have a clue what to say about him.

Sickamous (Scik Mouthy), Monday, 10 August 2009 09:11 (nine years ago) Permalink

"get the distinct feeling that tastemakers have decided he is passé. "

i don't know about the tastemakers but:
1.Eagle is one of 2009 best record (and there arent many great record in 09 so far imo)
2. i think it's his best record to date: the songwriting is a lot more interesting and complex than in the Smog era,his voice sounds better (and different!)than ever with the deep baritone sound, and the production is perfect.

the only problem i have with Eagle, is that sometimes Callahan's irony prevents some of the (potential) emotion impact of the songs.
thats also true for some Will Oldham's songs btw.

Zeno, Monday, 10 August 2009 10:32 (nine years ago) Permalink

i don't think either of these albums are as good as "supper" or "a river...". i wish he hadn't changed his name, maybe the albums would be better.

xpost. i do think his voice continues to improve.

Zeno, Monday, 10 August 2009 10:36 (nine years ago) Permalink

Sometimes... is definitely one of my albums of the year. Much darker and more cohesive than any of his previous records I feel. Some great moments. I love the slowly revealed sentence in Too Many Birds. I think he's getting better and better. Will Oldham is kind of becoming Woody Allen-esque in terms of quality and quantity!

y'huh, that's converted people i know who never liked smog.

would also be worth doing a s/d on non-lp smog; there's probably only five more songs, but everything he's done outside of the albums is terrific; there's a b-side called taken which is as good as anything on whaleheart (which i like, too - honeymoon child and day, particularly); all the covers he's done in the past few months and the couple that are forthcoming.

i agree entirely (but then, i'm predisposed to agree, having mounted similar arguments elsewhere). i don't think it would be all that hard to do a good, attentive analysis of bill's music, since it's not notably intricate.

i think your analysis of why critics don't have much to say about his new LPs is spot on, as well. there haven't really been any negative reviews of his recent work, just a general sense of, "oh hi here's a new excellent bill callahan record now didja hear about the wavvvvvvves guy throwing a hissy fit?!"

amateurist, Monday, 10 August 2009 19:36 (nine years ago) Permalink

drag city figures may but this idea to rest, but i can see bill gradually gaining more and more of a following and his records selling a bit better (accouting for overall continued drop in record sales) despite relative lack of press. at least, his last show here was sold out.

amateurist, Monday, 10 August 2009 19:37 (nine years ago) Permalink

i still think "supper" might be my favorite record, but the last one is excellent. i like "whaleheart," too, it simply doesn't stick in the mind as much or as long.

i've seen this dude in concert a dozen times dating back to 1996. he is never less than good. sometimes the long atonal blooze or velvet underground-style raveups are real boring, sometimes they hit the spot.

only two older songs on that list. but happily some stuff from "supper" (my favorite of his LPs).

lyrics on supper are so sharp and tense and funny and kinda hot throughout

werewolf congress (schlump), Friday, 12 March 2010 00:03 (nine years ago) Permalink

All this talk about Supper makes me want to check it out. It may be the only Smog record I don't own. Just haven't got around to it. My favorite Callahan/Smog record is the one I heard first - Knock Knock.

musicfanatic, Friday, 12 March 2010 00:30 (nine years ago) Permalink

supper is my fave; i am not a big listmaker but it's one of my favourite things that existed in the last ten years.

knock knock is kinda uneven to me; some of the best songs are on there but the slow loren connors jam and the weird no dancing upbeat stuff make it kind of too broad i think.

werewolf congress (schlump), Friday, 12 March 2010 00:34 (nine years ago) Permalink

yeah, the lyrics from supper are fantastic. probably my favorite album as well.

a friend of mine at the time (who was a big smog fan) felt that he was moving into a too-elliptical and -obscurantist direction, but i actually don't think this is the case w/ supper. my friend cited the song butterflies drowned in wine. but that's a really easy to understand and evocative and inventive mashup of two metaphors (butterflies in the stomach/drowning your troubles in alcohol). i think in the last two albums he can maybe be accused of being opaque but i still love him.

i know it's a cliche but i can't think of a better contemporary lyricist. the guy from drive-by truckers is pretty good though their music isn't particular to my tastes.

The Magnificent Colin Firth (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 12 March 2010 00:49 (nine years ago) Permalink

you know, i haven't heard any of forster's recent (meaning past 15 years?) stuff. i'm not a huge go-betweens fan though i do like them. always found something a little too..emphatic around the edges about them for my taste. don't know if i could explain it better. both forster and mcclennan obviously wrote some deathless songs.

not sure how to express this, but although i actually think bill's more of a melodist than he often gets credit for being, i don't think the charm of music is principally about novel or tricky 'tunes'. i mean, the 'hooks' in his songs are often in his wry, often very very funny delivery. he tends to use variations on sort of stock, public-domain-type melodies; and typically his inventiveness comes in terms of the way he varies or suspends or elongates the phrasing. and sometimes in terms of his play with the larger form of the song.

by another name (amateurist), Friday, 12 March 2010 00:57 (nine years ago) Permalink

i love "supper" but my favourites of recent albums are this new one and "a river...". it's great that people claim any of the albums to be their favourites but still love another five so much that they can't really decide. i'd be surprised if someone told me "woke on a waleheart" or "rain on lens" were their faves but, unlike other artists, i'd listen again to try and work out why they liked them so much.. and i'd probably end up loving them too.

i agree that he's the best lyricist working now (that i'm aware of) and by some distance.

hm "distance", that's some track.

I don't remember it all that clearly which I guess is about the clearest thing I can say. I enjoyed it, found it very funny in that particular dry, dark and strange way Callahan makes me smirk. It's very weird, (set slightly in the future I think, and it's epistolary which means most of the details are left for the reader to fill in for themselves). I enjoyed it and it's a very very quick read. Actually thinking about it makes me want to go back nd try it again.

Callahan, whose style has been compared to that of Leonard Cohen, came across Ryan's work when the painter sent his record company an email asking for permission to use his music in a documentary film about his art practice. Callahan said he would give permission if Ryan sent an artwork he could use on his next album cover, Apocalypse. He loved it so much, he asked Ryan for paintings for his next releases, Dream River and Have Fun With God.

i wonder if it's a double album or shorter songs

na (NA), Thursday, 2 May 2019 14:38 (one month ago) Permalink

seems to be shorter songs ... here's drag city's writeup

Rejoice! Bill Callahan's late-phase hot streak continues with his first record since 2013, Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest.

After Dream River, Bill's life went through some changes. Good changes - marriage and a kid - but afterwards, it was suddenly harder for him to find the place where the songs came, to make him and these new experiences over again into something to sing. His songs have always been elusive, landing lightly between character study and autobiography, as the singer-songwriter often does. This felt different, though. After 20 years of putting music first, he wasn't prepared to go away from it completely. Or perhaps, after all the time, the obvious needs to be made just a little more explicit?

First, it's a different kind of record. Bill's now writing from somewhere beyond his Eagle-Apocalypse-River headspace, and Shepherd In a Sheepskin Vest is very much its own beast. The songs are, by and large, shorter, and there are more of them. It took almost all of the previous three albums to add up to that many. Plus, twenty's a lot of songs! But again, it goes a lot deeper than that.

When you finally listen to Shepherd In a Sheepskin Vest, a feeling of totality, of completeness, will steal over you, like a thief in broad daylight. Of course it will- you'll be listening to a new Bill Callahan record! The first one in almost six years! What more do you need to complete you? Pre-order your copy for June 14th and get your tickets for his upcoming US/European tour!
