BILL CALLAHAN (Smog) radiates a peculiarly male energy: an unspecified kind of careworn rage, an acute sense of restlessness. As an autobiographer, Callahan is a rogue trader with an unreliable commodity, a conscientious objector to the confessors club that constitutes singer-songwriting.
Though new album Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle has a lighter feel than earlier Smog releases, the songs featured contemplate religion, nature and Callahan finding his own place. Callahan’s trademark bass vocals and his songs dark introspection find their perfect home in the gloom of the Union Chapel.
