LIVE AT THIRD MAN RECORDS
THIRD MAN RECORDS
The artist formerly known as smog brings his baritone to the third man stage for a profound set of material old and new.
Bill Callahan is simultaneously a staple of strange American country, lo-fi, folk and independent music. His lyricism comes across as challenging and deeply autobiographical, equal parts "poetry leaning on true-to-life darkness" and "three chords and the truth”. With brief, candid, and charming interludes between older and newer material, an outsider can hear that this performance was obviously a full-bodied (and multi-era) engagement, no space left for distraction. The full album is an experience; make it one you look after.
