Califone

There are many kind of stitches: seams to secure sleeves into armholes ... sutures closing wounds and deep incisions ... loops or crosses of embroidery floss ... a sudden pain in the side. Stitches, the new album from Califone, touches on all these definitions, its episodes of discomfort and healing rendered with exquisite beauty and craftsmanship.

WATCH // Califone Shares “Magdalene” Animated Video, Living Room Tour Starts April 20th

Califone released their newest record, Stitches, last year and we have already seen multiple cinematic videos for tracks “Frosted Tips”, “Bells Break Arms”, “We are a Payphone”, and “Movie Music Kills a Kiss”. Today, Califone shares a new stop-motion video for ““Magdalene” directed and animated by Jessie Stein (of The Luyas) and Amanda Bonaiuto.

Bonaiuto describes the setting for “Magdalene”:

“There is a woman who lives on a lake. She is always there in her boat where she stares up, and only up at the stars. The stars are her sole friends and her only fascination. She has never noticed the merman who lives in the lake and probably never will. A watery scene filled with empty wine bottles and colorful hair gives us a view of their world”

If you haven’t picked it up already, Stitches is available now on iTunes, Amazon, at your local record store, and from SC Distribution.

Califone continues their tour with living room shows starting April 20th in Hadley, Massachusetts.
