Smog Alert

It’s hard to overlook the power of shyness and the greatness it sometimes engenders. Eminent fraidy cats: Albert Einstein. Abraham Lincoln. Lucille Ball! Bill Callahan’s not quite famous, but you can still add him to the list. The lo-fi pioneer, a.k.a. Smog, is a mouse who’s learned to roar — quietly — with his stripped-bare sound and jet-black irony that’s often misinterpreted as alienation.
