Oh, end-of-year-best-of lists, how you cascade me with heaps and heaps of music i somehow managed to miss out on earlier in the year. Such is the case with Greek art-rock band The Callas. The foursome's "Am I Vertical?" LP was produced by Bad Seeds/Grinderman member Jim Sclavunos, and the record is full of angular, cutting avant garde rock tunes. They sound like some alternate dimension version of The Fall, and we, as a planet, need more bands that garner comparisons to The Fall. Get the album from Inner Ear and watch the video for "East Beat" below.
Much thanks to Shawn Baker for the heads up on these guys. Check out his favorite albums of 2013 here.
