For the track “Cowboy”, off last year’s Gold lp, Callahan tagged up with filmmakers Anthony Gasparro and Mikey Kampmann to bring the song to visual life.
Below, we flip the script as Callahan catches up with the pair to discuss their working relationship, storytelling, synchronicity, rippling kindness and the power of the tuna melt as edible nostalgia.
June 14th marked the return of Bill Callahan, via his latest record — the double lp, Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest. One of our favorite listens this year, we asked singer/songwriter Jerry David DeCicca to catch up with the artist on our behalf as they embarked a short west coast tour together. Their conversation, below …

Will Oldham and Matt Sweeney join us for an exploration into Superwolves, their long-awaited follow up the 2005 classic lp Superwolf.
Bonnie Prince Billy and Matt Sweeney return with a fiery new song featuring Tuareg guitarist Mdou Moctar and announce the long-awaited sequel to 2005’s Superwolf titled, naturally, Superwolves.
An embarrassment of riches from the Will Oldham universe of late. In addition to the ad hoc Instagram performances that began as quarantine commenced, the artist has recently been dropping a bevy of covers in collaboration with friend and labelmate, Bill Callahan. Want a taste? Their take on Steely Dan is particularly choice.
But hold up, the year isn’t over yet. This week finds Oldham once again sliding into his Superwolf suit with running partner, and guitar guru, Matt Sweeney.

It’s no small wonder the likes of Bill Callahan and Will Oldham count themselves among Fussell evangelists.
