Bill Callahan

Dream River

Drag City


Released: 16th Sep 2013



Released: 16th Sep 2013


Trademark two-chord guitar patterns, wailing lap-steel, lounge-infused drums & the occasional pan pipe! Callahan returns to treat us with more baritone infused Americana, covering wide ranging subjects from love to the apocalypse with his characteristic juxtaposed delivery, both sincere yet tongue in cheek.

Though the rich vocal dominates proceedings, the subtle & instrumentally diverse arrangements are equally as captivating. "he celebrates the happy silences that come after successful serenades ('the sing') & all but abandons traditional structure for groove-led intuition. relative shade keeps his 15th album vital...among callahan's very best" 9/10 - uncut, "songs billow, soar & undergo magical transitions" 5/5 - mojo.
