Califone - Califone (2000) Retail CD
Having split Red Red Meat (one of the Sub Pop label's better signings), singer and songwriter Tim Rutili returns as Califone, aided by, at various points, RRM's drummer Ben Massarella, programmer Brian Deck and bassist Tim Hurley. Whereas RRM delivered a bruising blues deepened by modern effects and production techniques, and Califone's first EP tossed its songs into a swirling pit of noise, this 5-track mini-album is consciously more restrained, highlighting a quiet, folky vocal that cracks and breaks like a mournful and moving J. Mascis. More often though, particularly when roughly harmonisedmore… and backed by picked and ringing guitar, it's convincingly and unusually rootsy--not unlike Hot Tuna's Jorma Kaukonen at his very best. Musically, the band veers between an updated but still fairly straight Appalachian folk and a challengingly contemporary sound that introduces a writhing and crashing latter day percussion and echoing effects to the mix. Thus, they remain entirely relevant without ever losing their grasp on age-old soul. Very few manage this--Califone are genuine groundbreakers. --Dominic Wills
