Bill Callahan: “Eid Ma Clack Shaw”
Bill Callahan used to work under the moniker, Smog. But over the last few years, he’s been releasing material under his own name, and the result is a crisp, more melodically accessible sound.
Callahan just released a new CD, Sometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle, almost exactly two years after the release of 2007′s critically acclaimed Woke on a Whale Heart.
Today’s song of the day is the lead single to the new album. It’s called “Eid Ma Clack Shaw,” and the bass line in the song pays a noticeable tribute to David Byrne and Talking Heads.
