If you don’t have a bit of Bill Callahan in your life then you’re not really doing music right. Arguably the pre-eminent American singer-songwriter of the past couple of decades, Callahan did a lot of his best work under the name of Smog. The fifth Smog LP, 1996’s The Doctor Came At Dawn, is a masterful example of Callahan’s quiet power, all lamp-lit acoustic guitar and portentous musing. The Doctor Came At Dawn was crafted with the help of his sometime collaborator Cynthia Dall.
