Califone Heron King Blues
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Thrill Jockey
After realizing that a recurring dream involving an avian Sasquatch paralleled an event of a British-Roman war, Califone's Tim Rutili decided to pay tribute to his nighttime visions with Heron King Blues. The album borrows equally from blues, folk, acoustic, country and rock, quietly mashing these lush elements together into rich sonic morsels. Rutili's mesmerizing pieces are reminiscent of the music of '60s cult figure Nick Drake: breathy vocals guide hazy atmospheres on "Sawsooth Sung," while "Lion & Bee"'s spare guitar riffs and resonant chords will haunt you beyond the waking hours.
