CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork

Callahan has nothing to add to the general conversation about music in 2011 but is making the best albums of his career.

Drowned in Sound

His latest LP is as reliably fine as a new film from the Coen Brothers.

Apocalypse is certainly less accessible than its predecessor, perhaps even wilfully so.

No Ripcord

Callahan continues to be a nature’s poet, painting his imagery with the most carefully detailed observations of the everyday.

Right where the alternative country ends and the desert rock begins, Bill Callahan has delimited his musical boundaries, determined not to overcome them, no matter the cost or the pressure.

Simple musical palette, gorgeous instrumentation: a wonderful setting-in-motion. One of Bill's finest projects.

Riding for the Feeling was #11 on Pitchfork's Best 200 songs of the decade list, probably as a token placement because they needed to have one shred of indie credibility left.

Desde 2009, Bill Callahan hace de cada disco una nueva obra civilizada de naturaleza real, captando toda atmósfera triangular con un mix perfecto entre mínimos instrumentos que suenan como miles. Apocalypse es el mejor trago de cada muestra que nos regaló Callahan en el último tiempo, pero que es compatible en cualquier estatus dialéctico con los demás.
