Califone- All My Friends Are Funeral Singers
I freaking love Califone! They were the best band I saw at this year's SXSW. You've never heard of them? Well do yourself a favor and go find out! Great band out of Chicago. I'm not really sure what you'd classify them as. Indie, experimental, whatever. You hear some blues, you hear some folk, you hear some rock, it's all great stuff. A bonus when you buy the lp, is you get the Side 4 long "Lunar H". Take that, CD!
I still haven't seen the movie of the same name that this album is a musical companion to and directed by Califone frontman, Tim Rutili. I'm lame for not having seen it yet since it's on Netflix, but I'll definitely get to it. It looks interesting.
Here's a video of the trailer of the movie and another for the "Funeral Singers" video
