The video below, for the song ‘Like A Rifle’, comes from Tim Rutili & Craig Ross’ forthcoming album 10 Seconds To Collapse. Tim is the founder and principle songwriter for Califone and Red Red Meat. Craig is a producer, songwriter and collaborator who has worked with Shearwater, Lisa Germano, Spoon, Patty Griffin, Robert Plant and Daniel Johnston.
The album, released on the 22nd June by Jealous Butcher Records, has been getting rave responses from other artists:
“Best record I’ve heard in a long time – each song wrapped in it’s own unique foil of odd old colors that get brighter each time you hear – every song worth a good long soak.” – M. Ward
“10 seconds to collapse is brilliant – Tim Rutili and Craig Ross make music of unhinged genius and bruised beauty” – Mark Lanegan
“Melancholy humor, playful messy bombast – it gets the car running then drives it into a ditch to stagger naked into the woods. A vast and unpredictable ride. Listen loud .” – Thor Harris (Swans, Shearwater)
