Listening back to this year's Gold Record, is a sentimental journey; once again, one hears the intuitive coming together forming richly behind Bill Callahan's titanic voice. Across the stereo spectrum, the gentle conversation of Bill and Matt’s guitars, the subtle percussion of bass and drums, striking notes both decorous and discordant, like the naturally occurring sound meant to accompany and express lives lived everywhere.
A fitting addition to Bill's encompassing vision of our lives together and apart is this new vid for Gold Record track "Breakfast". Dave Bryant's color-saturated video footage vision of digitally distorted interactions plays like like art and life, and the static and disconnect on our screens acts as an unexpected visual analog to Bill's tale of a dissolute domestic partnership. Compare and contrast for yourselves! And don't forget to eat your brekkie! It's still the most important meal of the day.
