[mp3] Califone - "Funeral Singers"

As I mentioned a few weeks back, Califone has a new album coming out October 6. All My Friends Are Funeral Singers is the first new material from the Chicago art-folk contingent since 2006’s splendid Roots & Crowns, and the 14-song set doubles as a sort-of film soundtrack to band leader Tim Rutili's directorial debut of the same name. Stereogum premiered the abbreviated title track, “Funeral Singers”, yesterday morning. It features a familiar bed of rickety, fret-buzzing acoustic guitars and Rutili’s creaky vocals over what sounds like might be, as the song progresses, dialogue from the film. Fans of the band will not be disappointed (by the way, click here for a smattering of band-approved mp3s from throughout their career if you are unfamilair - well worth your time) . Pre-orders come with a download code that can be redeemed starting September 8th and includes the 15-minute, vinyl-only bonus track “Lunar H”. Hear here:
