Vice just premiered Bill Callahan‘s new video for “Riding for the Feeling” off the ominously titled new alnum, Apocalypse. Earlier this month, PopMatters’ Corey Beasley praised the album: “Apocalypse is a restless record, one concerned with the difficulties of staying put. In that way, it also keeps itself at arm’s length. Callahan’s stripped away a good degree of the hooks present on Eagle, and in the process he’s made a more serious (and, sure, self-serious) album. He’s a talent prodigious enough to warrant a lateral move, and Apocalypse will find its rightful place in his 20-odd-years-long canon. It’s hard to think of an album more thoroughly transportive, even if the places it takes you won’t always be pleasant.” Callahan is also on tour at present, full details below.
