Orb Weaver

by Callow

Raw, haunting, cathartic, luscious, primal. "This isn’t house cleaning music. It is very dark and exploratory. Light some candles –not one or two, but maybe forty—on a full moon, and think about things. Very very deeply."
Genre: Rock: Slowcore

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A commanding amalgam of ambient indie art rock, driven by emotive vocals, haunting atmospheres, and gritty, poignant guitar. Red's raw contralto is reminiscent of Vic Chestnut while Sami creates a dark, primordial landscape with the simultaneous use of keyboard and percussion.

The two met at a house party in San Francisco in the fall of 2006. Red, who was playing in a jagged rock band at the time, was wanting to strip back his approach to song-writing to emphasize the vocals, as he had done when composing score for college theater. Sami, while dancing in a modern dance company, was interested in the conversation between dancer and musician, and her embodied sense of rhythm and musicality was leading her toward playing the drums. The advent of a crashing economy proved to be a catalyst in their shifting interests and priorities. Their philosophical and artistic perspectives came together, and a musical project was born. They've been writing music and touring around the northwest US ever since. Orb Weaver is their debut album.

"Don't let the name fool you." - Rachel Swan, East Bay Express

Callow is Red Moses (vocals, guitar) & Sami Knowles (percussion, keys, vocals)
