is great. Like most indie artists (imo) not the most consistent, but his best songs are way up there. Delicious slices of heaven. Very chill, relaxing voice, interesting instrumentation and what not. Basically everyone should check him out.

Have you heard Knock Knock yet? If not do because its an increbibly focused record. Flawless from beginning to end.

Holy ****. This guy is great.

Very folksy lo-fi tunes with excellent songwriting, what more could you ask for? Any fans of Andrew Bird, and Bon Iver should definitely check him out.

this seems like a good song, anyways..

I know I've heard that song somewhere before...his voice kind of reminds me of Captain Beefheart's.

I'm surprised this guy hasn't got more replies, definately one of the more creative singer-songwriters to emerge for a while. I've had Wild Love on play for a few weeks now, really good stuff.

Knock Knock, Dongs of Sevotion, The Doctor Came at Dawn and Red Apple Falls are all absolutely amazing records.

I <3 Bill Callahan.

I have not kept up with the recent albums (although I hear him on the local NPR station sometimes - he lives in Austin so they like him) but he used to be a huge favorite of mine. I love The Doctor Came at Dawn and Red Apple Falls. I saw him play when he toured for his RAF album - I'm happy for him that he's learning how to use that baritone voice and continue making a living from his music but I love him more as a shy indie-rocker who called his band Smog instead of naming it after himself.

I love this forum. How in the hell else would i have found out about this guy, and fallen in love with the song Palimpsest. Absolutely beautiful song. I some of the other songs, but not nearly as much as that one.
