Hello Caller Album Release Show Friday Night at Stubb’s
Local quintet Hello Caller is something of a hidden gem in this city, except perhaps amongst the new-folk/indie-folk fans who also appreciate the artistry of Shakey Graves and Wild Child – both of whom, by the way, have a connection with Hello Caller. Wild Child cellist Sadie Wolfe previously played with the band, and Alejandro Rose-Garcia (Shakey Graves) provides some guest vocals on the title track of the band’s soon-to-be-released debut full-length, Dark Twain.
A lot has been happening for this band that first caught my attention with their self-described “dark folk, jangle rock.” Dark Twain is already receiving national attention for its distinctive, melodic mystique. Their approach transcends expectations of what pop or indie folk is expected to sound like, using these impressive harmonies, chord progressions, multiple instruments and, overall, something a lot more ambitious and sophisticated.
The album’s official release is November 6, but Hello Caller is having a special release show Friday night at Stubb’s indoor venue, 801 Red River. The show will also feature performances by friend and collaborator Shakey Graves. Doors open at 10 p.m. Don’t miss it.
