Bill Callahan - Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest

Could this be Bill Callahan's 'let it all out' answer to Kozelek's 'Benji'? There's something a little more off the cuff, free flowing and confessional about this one so there's an unmistakable similarity there.

What's most impressive is that despite the gap between releases, and despite the album clocking up twenty (count 'em) songs, this might just be the man's most cohesive and repeat plays rewarding album yet.

It doesn't even need emphasising that this makes this album not only a strong 2019 AOTY contender but also an equally fierce top 10 of the decade candidate.

Callahan classics: The Ballad of the Hulk, What Comes After Certainty, Son of the Sea, Tugboats and Tumbleweeds
