151-CALIFONE-The Orchids


Tim Rutili’s post-Red Red Meat, post-rock project went expanding its sonic palette through the years, incorporating a notable influence of americana; next to more avant-garde elements. Califone’s career peak came in 2006 with “Roots & Crowns” and had for central piece this cover of Genesis P.Orridge’s cult band Psychic TV. The sweet and simple melody of the original is discretely re-arranged into a song Simon & Garfunkel would not reject off their repertoire. Subtle and beautiful.
