On Heron King Blues, Califone continues to sharpen the attack they mounted on QuicksandCradlesnakes: a very natural-sounding blend of folk and blues, experimental rock, and electronic textures. Wingbone starts things out as an all-acoustic affair, with an understated and somewhat cryptic melodic vocal and pretty, complementary acoustic guitars. Trick Bird is next, and despite the appearance of loops and feedback, slides and scraping, the tune remains organic and folky even as it approaches the avant-garde. Thrill Jockey Records The untitledtitle songoutro from the critically aclaimed album, Heron King not exactly a concept album, Heron King Blues was inspired, at least tangentially, by frontman Tim Rutili's recurring dream about a half-man, half-bird creature check the freaked-out cover art, and brought into gritty fruition on the heels of Rutili's subsequent epiphany: the character his subconscious had presumably spun from nothing boasted inexplicable roots in ancient. Druid legend. The resulting album is haunting, nervous, and shaking with catharsis. On Califone's last studio LP, 2003's QuicksandCradlesnakes. Heron King Blues. Released January 20, 2004.

Califone's 2004 release Heron King Blues is a concept album involving a recurring dream: Rutili has had a recurring dream since his youth, involving a giant man-bird creature, and then he discovered that the creature was actually a representation of an ancient Druid god called the heron king, which the British feared so deeply that they fled the battlefield when an effigy of the heron king was hoisted above the heads of the opposing army, and.
