CALLAHAN, BILL - DREAM RIVER (LP)


"Cabin crew, prepare for landing! Gliding through low altitudes, Bill Callahan has set his sites on the runway. It is 2013 and he's ready to land again, with a full cargo for the people down below on earth. From way up high, everything looks so small. But then you land and it swallows you whole. You disappear into the little models, and the trains keep rolling by. And the lights go on and off again. And the trucks on the highway, bound for parts unknown. In the song-world of Bill Callahan, the present realities tumble ecstatically like cloth in the wind - sheets and flags and clothes. These things borne aloft are not simply physical details in the landscape, but the contours of an emotional one as well. Bill's a cartographer way out there, tracing the coastlines, telling the tales he has discovered along the way. Some seen in life and others in mind's eye, they float down Dream River with humble eminence." (label info) also available on CD
