Performer Notes
  • On his second album since retiring the project name Smog, singer-songwriter Bill Callahan delivers possibly his most direct, straightforward, and sonically accessible album. A song cycle that seems to reflect upon Callahan's breakup with fellow alt-folk star Joanna Newsom (especially the metaphor-rich "The Wind and the Dove"), SOMETIMES I WISH WE WERE AN EAGLE feels like the postmodern equivalent of one of James Taylor or Jackson Browne's intensely personal 1970s albums.
Professional Reviews
Paste (magazine) - "Callahan offers full, round songs of easy beauty that wax and wane around his viscous baritone."

Pitchfork (Website) - "[H]ere, Callahan's lyrics feel intensely personal....[The record] has such a strong air of private conversation that listening to it feels like eavesdropping..."

Uncut (magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]e is far too tricksy and sophisticated a songwriter to be so obvious, and the prevailing mood is, perhaps, rueful."
