Smog - Mice

Ah, heck, it's a long weekend and there are plenty of S-bands to go around, so let's pour us another round. Let's start with another lo-fi riser. Just as D.C. Berman of the Silver Jews went on to develop some serious singer-songwriter alt-country chops, Bill Callahan of Smog has also come a long way, baby. Not that "Mice" or the other five bits of song on 1991's 7" EP Floating, also on Drag City, aren't enjoyable, but it's a quantum leap from here to "A River Ain't Too Much To Love". Still, it's fun to retrace the steps. Careful not to miss the bottom stair.
