Intimate timbres - garage sale drum machines, slack guitar strings, hushed vocals - offset this exquisitely crafted album’s cinematic inclinations.
Brass, pedal steel & strings colour in the edges & outline songs like 'Frosted Tips', 'We Are A Payphone', 'Moonbath.brainsalt.a.holy.fool' & 'Moses'. Gritty electronics, the mesmerising thrumming of tablas & eerie keyboards also pepper these 10 new selections. In some regards, 'Stitches' harks back to those earliest days of Califone Yet the ultimate outcome sounds like the work of an artist reborn.
