DENNIS CALLACI

THE DEAD OF THE DAY

SHRIMPER


Format: CD
Cata No: SHR201
Barcode: 767870660627
The third in a triptych of solo albums by Dennis Callaci of the band
Refrigerator began with Bed Of Light featuring Simon Joyner, David
Nance and the Ghost band as well as Kevin Morby and Jarvis Taveniere
as a full throated five piece / orchestrated record which gave way to
the thirty minute piece The End Of Night two years later. The last
piece in this series is the new record The Dead Of The Day, a stripped
down acoustic record minus drums. Guitar and piano ballads,
funereal fugues, a fifteen minute instrumental opener and other
rough strays sit together with lyrics that play off of one another.
Franklin Bruno plays the piano and organ, long-time collaborator
Aaron Alcala is on a few songs and Allen Callaci’s vocals appear as
a ghostly refrain on the track “Scoreless”.
The record’s release falls the same day as the Callaci’s novel 100
Cassettes published by Pelekinesis whose narrative ties into the songs
on The Dead Of The Day. The book is made of 100 chapters with an
introduction by Jonathan Lethem.
“Scraping strings are as likely to clash in dissonance as soothe with
melody; a lush and lonely slide guitar eases the tension, though
in a melancholy way. Plenty of space in these songs allows for
rumination, which is a good thing because Dennis Callaci, whom
you might recognize from Refrigerator or his 2013 collaboration with
Simon Joyner or his stewardship of Shrimper Records, gets off an
inexhaustible supply of mordant, delicately phrased observations,
mostly about human frailty.”
