Bill Callahan - Drover

Career Callahan started out as a highly experimental artist, using substandard instruments and recording equipment. His early songs often nearly lacked melodic structure and were clumsily played on poorly tuned guitars, resulting in the dissonant sounds on his self-released cassettes and debut album Sewn to the Sky.

Much of his early output was instrumental, a stark contrast to the lyrical focus of his later work.

Apparently, he used lo-fi techniques not primarily because of an aesthetic preference but because he didn't have any other possibility to make music. Once he signed a contract with Drag City , he started to use recording studios and a greater variety of instruments for his records. From to , Callahan's recordings grew more and more "professional" sounding, with more instruments, and a higher sound quality.

Callahan also worked closely with his then-girlfriend Cynthia Dall in his early career, and they contributed vocals to each other's albums. After 's Dongs of Sevotion , Callahan began moving back to a slightly simpler instrumentation and recording style, while retaining the more consistent songwriting style he had developed over the years.

Smog's songs are often based on simple, repetitive structures, consisting of a simple chord progression repeated for the duration of the entire song. His singing is characterized by his baritone voice. Melodically and lyrically he tends to eschew the verse-chorus approach favoured by many contemporary songwriters, preferring instead a more free-form approach relying less on melodic and lyrical repetition.

Themes in Callahan's lyrics include relationships, animals, relocation, nature, and more recently, politics.

So, the character appears in all or most of the songs on one record and then is gone. Though it makes me feel weird to talk about.

My albums as a whole could be seen as one character with many voices.

Then he was a cult DIY concern with sometimes creepy takes on characters and relationships. Ex-Con, another Smog tune Callahan still has time for tonight, imagines kidnapping a child from a shop.
