Bill Callahan finds a garden escape from the loud city

The artist formerly known as Smog, has recently released his fourth album. And I’ve always been a huge fan of this introvert barytone singer. Full of warm analogue tones, flutes and fiddles, and softly-tapped hand drums. But it’s not all smooth sailing: like dreams themselves, Dream River has deep undercurrents, some of them quite disturbing.
