DOWNLOAD: Califone - Funeral Singers (MP3)


Califone are currently on tour with Wilco. On Wednesday, March 17th, you can catch them at SXSW where they'll be playing the official BrooklynVegan showcase at Club DeVille along with Serena Maneesh and four more artists TBA.

After SXSW, Califone will head to NYC for a Tuesday, March 30th show at the Bell House with Sonoi. Tickets are on sale.

Though they won't at the Brooklyn show, or at the official SXSW show, Califone will be (and has been) playing along with their superb All My Friends Are Funeral Singers film on other dates (as they did at 92YTribeca when they were last in NYC during CMJ). The accompanying CD came out last year on Dead Oceans. The film just screened at Sundance in January and was picked up for release on DVD...

IndiePix Films announced today the acquisition of distribution rights to "All My Friends Are Funeral Singers", the film directed by Tim Rutili and executive produced by Glen Sherman. DVD release is scheduled for April 13. Zel is a fortune teller, sharing her home with a group of ghosts who help her remove clients' aches and pains, advise gamblers, and channel cranky spirits to check on their loved ones. When a mysterious light appears in the woods and the ghosts realize they are trapped, Zel is forced to come to terms with the origins of these spirits and let go of the only family she has ever known. Superstition, sound and the confines of Zel's claustrophobic house feed the film's construction, allowing the story to unfold like the music of Califone, who provide the lush original soundtrack. IndiePix will manage the distribution of this film in theatrical, DVD, digital and new media markets worldwide.
You can get "Funeral Singers" (the almost-title track) from that record above. Clips from All My Friends and all tour dates are below...

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.

This lineup happens to be very good. Pavement and Deerhunter are playing on the same day. It doesn't get much better than that.Anyone who wonders why LCD Soundsystem has the second billing has obviously not seen them live. They are probably the best band i've ever seen at a festival (Lollapalooza 2007).

I have seen the last tour of Califone - look forward to see them live this year again. Already look forward to it.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
