Califone Live

Monday, October 19, 2009

The experimental indie group Califone is hard to pin down – and so is their latest project. It’s either an album or a feature-length film. The band’s primary songwriter, Tim Rutili, joins us to talk about All My Friends Are Funeral Singers, a joint music-and-film project that the band is taking on tour. We get a preview as Califone performs live in our studio.

don't bother trying to pin them down--califone's turned out the yummiest double-album (vinyl, y'all) i've heard in forever. their work grows more heart-rending the more one listens.

can't wait to see them at the 92nd St. Y/tribeca friday! kisses to all!
