Stitches, the new album from Califone, touches on all permutable definitions of the dialogue, its episodes of uneasiness and healing rendered with choice dream and craftsmanship. Archetypes and mythological figures rub shoulders with bruised civilians throughout this odyssey.

Exhaustive timbres--garage traffic drum machines, inattentive guitar strings, hushed vocals--counteraction the album's cinematic inclinations. The listener moves through a prospect of Old Testament blood and guts, spaghetti Western deserts and Southwestern horizons, zeroing in on emotions and images that cannot be glanced over. Motes of dust hoof it minutes in afternoon sunlight.

«This is the only list I«ve made in my individual where none of the exertion was done in Chicago,» says Califone»s Tim Rutili. The criticism and recording began in Southern California, then continued in Arizona and Texas. «Those dry landscapes and beaches and hills and shopping malls all made it into the music,» he acknowledges. Uniquely non-professional elements are interwoven into the songs, too, including sounds Rutili recorded in his backyard during rainfall and while driving in his car.

Insolence, pedal insulate, and strings color in the edges and silhouette songs like «Frosted Tips,» «We Are A Payphone,» «Moonbath.brainsalt.a.holy.fool» and «Moses,» yet Stitches is no Ennio Morricone-meets-Cecil B. DeMille blend. Staunch electronics, the mesmerizing thrumming of tablas, and eldritch keyboards also scatter these ten new selections. A cartographer could pay out lifetimes mapping the territory of Stitches.

Long Run Rutili commenced recording with Griffin Rodriguez in Los Angeles, Michael Krassner in Phoenix, and Craig Ross in Austin, along with a raft of company musicians. «We treated each at a bargain price a fuss as its own particular planet. Bringing in different people and recording in different places helped pull off some tightness to the whole possession. I wanted this to be a more schizophrenic list, stitching together conflicting textures and feels.» Rutili«s old Red Red Edibles mate Tim Hurley stayed with him for a few months and they recorded together for the first however since Califone»s eponymous 1998 launch EP.

In some regards, Stitches harks second to those earliest days of Califone. There was more people's home recording, and musicians came and went as the songs dictated. Yet the highest upshot sounds like the exertion of an artist reborn. Rutili says. «Instead of criticism from my balls and discernment, this however I wrote from the nerves, peel, and heart.»
