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 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.
