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.

ALBUM RELEASE // Califone’s ‘Stitches’ Out Today, Touring Through October

After playing a fantastic Labor Day in-store at Nashville‘s iconic record store Grimey’s yesterday, Califone‘s new album, Stitches, is finally out today in stores and online!

Stitches is the band’s 7th album, a followup to 2009’s All My Friends Are Funeral Singers, and the band’s first completely made outside Chicago. Califone’s Tim Rutili explains that the writing and recording began in Southern California and then finished the album in Arizona and Texas saying “those dry landscapes and beaches and hills and shopping malls all made it into the music”. Enchanting, complex, and emotionally driven songs will satisfy diehard fans while bringing new fans to Califone’s established sound and storied history.

You can get Stitches on iTunes, Amazon, your local record store, and from SC Distribution.
