I have already post about Bill Callahan’s new record ; it’s so beautiful that I want to share this with you readers, listeners a secod time. Unfortunatly there is not a lot of interesting things about Bill on Internet … except this wonderful music video « Rock Bottom Riser » from a previously album « A River Ain’t Too Much To Love » recorded by Bill under the name of Smog.
