Bobby Bland was the man! Bland was out of Memphis and had a voice and style all his own, the perfect mix between blues and soul.

“Stitches” is the title track from the forthcoming album by Califone. On a foundation of organ chords, squalls of barely controlled guitar feedback and drum machine blast-beats perfectly frame the evocative lyrics.
