Califone Dig Up Unreleased Tracks for Vinyl Reissue of 'Sometimes Good Weather Follows Bad People'
Published Oct 16, 2012Califone's 2002 release Sometimes Good Weather Follows Bad People was a compilation of the band's first two EPs, and now Tim Rutili and co. are revisiting those old songs once again. On November 6, the compilation will be reissued on vinyl through Jealous Butcher Records.
Sometimes Good Weather Follows Bad People was originally only released on CD, and now it's being pressed on double-LP. Making things even sweeter, the fourth side consists of four previously unreleased tracks that date back to the final sessions by Rutili's previous band, Red Red Meat.
"On the first two Califone EPs, we were definitely trying to allow some deep change and possibility into what we were doing, and the door was always wide open to accidental music and automatic writing," Rutili said in a statement. "We built a lot of this music on accidents and chance occurrences. Some of the songs are really good; some of it sounds like an expedition that got lost in the woods. I was still playing with toy drum machines, cheap or borrowed synths and a cassette 4-track, trying to make songs out of all these insane sounds."
You can pre-order a copy here. The first 300 copies will be pressed on translucent light-blue vinyl.
