his press shots are an interesting history. gonna assume most photos excludes the river guard shot of him shaving.

wonderful artwork. really excited for this album/tour.

i was talking about this on the chicago thread bc i'd never heard of the alhambra palace before but it looks like it's a huge moroccan restaurant? pretty cool looking actually. i'll probably go to the show.

congratulations (n/a), Tuesday, 9 July 2013 16:32 (four years ago) Permalink

i pretty much never go to shows for various reasons (infant son, full-time work, etc.) but i'll certainly go to this

ha ditto

congratulations (n/a), Tuesday, 9 July 2013 16:37 (four years ago) Permalink

also really excited that matt kinsey is playing on this record, his work on apocalypse was amazing

marcos, Tuesday, 9 July 2013 16:37 (four years ago) Permalink

idk about the artwork. it's..trying too hard..

the fonts of his name are awesome though

nostormo, Tuesday, 9 July 2013 16:45 (four years ago) Permalink

mick turner support is a treat. wish i could get to one of these.

i am assuming this is the guy who did the apocalypse sleeve, i wish the BILL CALLAHAN was written as texturally unobtrusively as on that but it's nice, yeah

marcos, Tuesday, 9 July 2013 18:38 (four years ago) Permalink

dude likes rivers, no doubt. not his first river title, even. frequently refers to himself as a river. frankly, I'd be damned surprised if n/a could supply a better river than a guy with so many river credentials

sausagehat (Sufjan Grafton), Tuesday, 9 July 2013 18:42 (four years ago) Permalink

I love the cover, just not the font on the bottom. Otherwise, it's a beaut.

Dude is not playing anywhere near me, natch, but this is one of my most anticipated 2013 releases. Very psyched.

Jimmywine Dyspeptic, Tuesday, 9 July 2013 21:06 (four years ago) Permalink

"I love the cover, just not the font on the bottom. Otherwise, it's a beaut."

yeah it looks so odd and unresolved and that's coming from someone who thinks complaining about fonts is a weird affectation that must stop.

Expanding Dub / Highs In The Mid-40s Dub. VINYL FORMAT. Two dub versions of songs from Callahan's forthcoming Dream River album on Drag City due in September.

szarkasm (schlump), Wednesday, 31 July 2013 00:53 (four years ago) Permalink

Wanna hear those dubs.

I have in front of me an opportunity to go see this man at a place called Pappy and Harriet's Pioneertown Palace, just outside Joshua Tree. An outdoor venue that encourages bbqin' under the stars. It's a two and a half hour drive from where I am, and I'd probably have to do a half day at work the next day in order to fully enjoy myself. But I'm thinking I should take this opportunity despite the costs.

del griffith, Wednesday, 31 July 2013 01:36 (four years ago) Permalink

Thought that Apocalypse doc was solid! Then I saw it projected outdoors while eating tacos and drinking beer and Callahan played a few songs at the end.

circa1916, Wednesday, 31 July 2013 01:39 (four years ago) Permalink

album title is making me want to hear callahan sing "moon river"

tylerw, Wednesday, 31 July 2013 01:48 (four years ago) Permalink

del griffith that sounds like an awesome opportunity!

Rothko's Chicken and Waffles (donna rouge), Wednesday, 31 July 2013 14:32 (four years ago) Permalink

cool
He said the resonant conga beat that drives “Javelin Unlanding” lent itself to a dub makeover.

this makes me excited for the album version

mizzell, Tuesday, 6 August 2013 17:59 (four years ago) Permalink

lol i'd really prefer to hear the album version first. ha i'm not sure that the dub format suits callahan that great? i always appreciate how honest the production is on recent albums, esp. apocalypse, his voice comes across so clean that i don't really feel like i need/want spacey dub effects. i mean, i love dub, but callahan satisfies other needs i have and not my spacey dub needs

marcos, Tuesday, 6 August 2013 19:31 (four years ago) Permalink

(“Some people feel the taste of pilgrim guts are too strong/I find I can’t get by without it for too long” goes one line on the new album)

is a "brain tree" a real type of tree? a medical term? I know braintree is a town. if you GIS it, you just get a bunch of clip art. it comes up in actual air as well.

i haven't spent a lot of time with "have fun with god" but "ride my dub" is pretty great, those spacier middle tracks on "dream river" are better suited for the dub format than the folkier tracks that open and close the album

I love the cover painting. Apparently it's by someone named Paul Ryan. Can anyone link me to a page that actually is about that Paul Ryan and not one of the 500 other artist named Paul Ryan?

Can’t and don’t want to detach this album from a very specific time in my life. Obviously relatively recent, but still. It’s warm and it makes me feel like drinking a beer as the sun goes down on a Sunday afternoon.

Still feel vaguely embarrassed about the time I saw him at a screening of his documentary and I caught him in passing and said something useless like “Hey, I love your work and thanks for doing this” and shook his hand with a totally gross, sticky hand that I recently spilled beer on.
