Every summer it seems I have a band or two to whom I cannot stop listening. ’05 was Creedence Clearwater Revival. ’06 was Kings of Leon. Last year was a twofer of The Black Keys and The Doors. And this year is no different, as I have been listening to Califone almost nonstop.
Their acid folk sound is perfect accompaniment for driving through traffic on a hot day. It will calm you down when someone cuts you off; trust me.
This song, “The Orchids,” is a cut from their Roots & Crowns album, released a few years ago. It’s great. Give it a listen if you know what’s good for you.
