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.

WATCH // Califone Shares One-Shot Video for “Movie Music Kills a Kiss”, Tour Starts January 5th



Last year Califone premiered three unique and beautiful videos for songs Frosted Tips, Bells Break Arms, and We are a Payphone. All three came from the band’s 2013 release, Stitches, which the Boston Globe called “Americana at its most haunted” and Pitchfork said “[Stitches] is exactly the sort of Americana record that can act as antidote for what’s happening in the genre right now.”

To ring in 2014, Tim Rutili shares a truly stunning and dreamy one-shot short film at 96 frames per second for “Movie Music Kills a Kiss” featuring Rutili and Angela Bettis in the fourth visual off last year’s album. On the song and visual, Rutili says, “Movie music can add or subtract emotional weight or fool you into thinking nothing is something and something is nothing. Movie music really can kill a kiss.” Watch the slow motion love story above or here on YouTube.
