Surely the inverse is true? Nothing could be sparser than early Smog records. His recent stuff is far lusher with more time spent on arrangements. It's also more open and less tricky lyrically. I enjoy both sides to Bill Callahan but in trying to heap praise she sort of does a disservice to his stellar back catalogue and really I wouldn't trust this review as far as I could throw it....on Smog's 1997 album Red Apple Falls, and it's striking to consider how much has changed in the years since. Callahan's baritone has lowered about an octave; he used to sing through his nose but now his voice (a much richer and more resonant instrument) seems to come direct from the murkiest depths of his lungs. His arrangements have also grown more sparse, and on all fronts he’s learned how to say more with less. It’s one of many paradoxes in Callahan’s music, that in abandoning a method of singing more traditionally considered “expressive,” he's actually learned how to express more.
thats every pitchfork review though. Seems the only stipulation is you have to make it sound wanky. Other than that anything else goes.Terrible review here:
Not terrible in that the journo clearly loves it (and Apocalypse) but she clearly has no clue what she's talking about.
