about

In the summer of 2002, Tim Rutili and the rest of Califone had just come out of a busy year that included touring with Yankee Hotel Foxtrot-era Wilco and collaborating with Issac Brock’s alter-ego project, Ugly Casanova. With new creative energy unlocked, the band began work on the follow-up to their breakout full-length debut, 'Roomsound'. The result, the much celebrated 'Quicksand/Cradlesnakes', brims with earned confidence.

Here, Califone began to master the mix of blues, country and technical glitchery so oft-referenced today, all the while creating something timeless. 'Quicksand / Cradlesnakes' is rugged and elegant, dark and optimistic, familiar and entirely new. In a word it is beautiful.
