In 1999, at a time when he was a nervous wreck and singing under the name Smog, Bill Callahan opened his Knock Knock album with a song called Let's Move to the Country. It was about stopping travelling and moving to the country, “just you and me”. At the end of the song, two sentences were left strangely incomplete: “Let's start…/Let's have...”. Twenty years later, Callahan covered Let's Move to the Country on Gold Record, and he’s filled in the blanks: “Let's start a family / Let's have a baby / or maybe two / ooh ooh oooh”. In real life, he settled down and started a family. He anchored himself, tamed his anxiety and opened a new chapter in his very long discography. Bill Callahan’s albums have always been intense. But in the last couple of years they have become intensely peaceful. There’s no stylistic revolution on Gold Record: Callahan always harvests his songs in the field of Americana, between wasteland country and bluesy folk by the fireside. And what makes him unique and exciting belongs only to him: that dry, low voice that hasn’t changed since the first version of Let's Move to the Country, some unusual production details, lyrics like an existential diary inspired by everyday life experiences - one song about breakfast, another about neighbours, another about Ry Cooder. A touch of humour, too. For example, Bill Callahan begins the song Pigeons with the words “Hello, I'm Johnny Cash” and ends it with a “Sincerely, L. Cohen”. In his own way (lurking in the shadows and happy to be there), he has taken over from the two giants with Gold Record. © Stéphane Deschamps/Qobuz

Onderscheidingen Pitchfork: Best New Music
Nearly 30 years after publishing his first album under the pseudonym Smog, Bill Callahan has become an icon of Americana, indie folk and alternative country. The fifty-something American songwriter has always excelled with his sharply disillusioned songs; however in recent years, the singer has gotten married and even become a father! Enough upheaval to give him material to make music from for the time being. Thus, Callahan draws material from his everyday life for the first time. Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest holds a few unknown details about his life at home, but Mr. Smog’s talent is such that he manages to convey these anecdotes with such precision that the music still has a real depth to it. He pairs this with a level of instrumentation that is pared back to the extreme: a simple folk guitar here, a touch of lap-steel guitar there, a dash of Mellotron or a few drops of double bass elsewhere… Relaxed, sensible but not necessarily too smooth, Bill Callahan enters this new stage of his life by delivering his most profound album yet. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

De Amerikaanse singer-sonwriter Bill Callahan brengt in de begindagen van zijn muzikale loopbaan platen uit onder de naam Smog. Vanaf 2007 werkt hij onder zijn eigen naam en Dream River (2013) is het vierde album dat hij onder zijn eigen naam uitbrengt en zijn vijftiende album in totaal. Het is een plaat die indruk maakt met ingetogen en toch indringende folksongs, die niet zelden een melancholiek inslag kennen. © TiVo
