Califone sign to Dead Oceans, prep new album

Pitchfork is reporting today that the perennially underrated Califone will be bringing their unique blend of folk, roots, and experimental music to the Dead Oceans label for the follow up to 2006’s excellent Roots & Crowns. The new one is to be called All My Friends Are Funeral Singers and drops October 6. Hopefully with a new label the band will get a little more (much deserved) exposure.
