7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 30th October 2014

Califone’s “Heron King Blues” opens with a blend of the anachronistic: swampy blues on “Wingbird” and more current experimentation: Steve Reich-ish plinks and plonks are drowned in feedback towards the end of “Trick Bird”. This mix continues throughout the album: “Lion And Bee” is the former, “Apple” the latter. “2 Sisters Drunk On Each Other” is almost sleazy disco. The title track is a 15-minute broken-down, funky weirdness that defies meaningful explanation. The album closes with a three minute outro which comes across as incidental stalking music. Parts of the album, I guess, could be described as being in the vein of Wilco’s more off-kilter moments.

It’s definitely a grower, you will need to spend some time with this record.
