You KNOW that voice murmuring out at you from You Tube! You've been hearing that voice over and over again since...way back in June, when Bill Callahan's first album in (too many) years, Shepherd in A Sheepskin Vest, finally happened! At 20 songs, it's hip-deep in gentle spacey numbers that take on folk and roots music like no other. Man, it was good to hear from him! Well, it's four months later, and now, here's one of the many highlights from that now classic release - utterly transformed into a video!
Directed by Arturo Baston, the video for "Call Me Anything" is a kaleidoscopic spin through the rustic southwestern cosmology of Callahan's vividly painted vignettes, illuminating the sense of a life thunderstruck by change and the inevitability in giving and receiving that we all must face. These thoughts have been quarantined within the deep corners of our imaginations, with only Bill's voice to guide us - until now!
Watch the video above and if you haven't procured a copy of Shepherd In a Sheepskin Vest just yet, get a-movin'!
