Biography

There are many kind of stitches: seams to secure sleeves into armholes ... sutures closing wounds and deep incisions ... loops or crosses of embroidery floss ... a sudden pain in the side. Stitches, the new album from Califone, touches on all these definitions, its episodes of discomfort and healing rendered with exquisite beauty and craftsmanship.

Editorial Reviews

Califone is at the peak of its powers on All My Friends Are Funeral Singers, its sixth song based album. The long-awaited follow-up to 2006's acclaimed Roots and Crowns, the album is the strongest collection of songs in a career with no shortage of strength. TAll My Friends Are Funeral Singers is a dense collage of sounds, expertly formed into fully realized pop songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Among their finest. . . October 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is the kind of CD that reinvigorates the album as a relevant form, as its accomplishment builds with repeated listening. Tim Rutili is one of the most underrated singer-songwriters in indie music, and his phrase montages build to create an atmosphere out of the ghosts of America's secret vocabulary. With All My Friends Are Funeral Singers, the band achieves a mature, fully realized project, blending cooling Studebaker radiator syncopation with ball-peen hammer percussion, found noise and odd instruments underpinned by blues-folk string virtuosity and more than a few fine pop hooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album since Roomsound, maybe best yet. January 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD
At the risk of sounding pretentious, this album is sublime. This is possibly their most refined and on-point project yet. Like all Califone albums, it blows you away on the first listen, and only gets better with each successive listen. I've had it for about two weeks now and I'm finding it hard to tear myself away to listen to anything else.

As luck would have it, they're coming through Missoula on Feb. 7. To hell with the Super Bowl, I get to see Califone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, again December 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There is no one who sounds like Califone. And it is better as a whole album. So strange and confident, so unconscious of what might be hip or snag obvious attention. The lyrics are wonderful, the music constantly surprising and right. I daresay: better than Beck.
