The Callas: Am I Vertical

Am I Vertical? cover art
Am I Vertical is the sophomore album from The Callas on Greek indie label, Inner Ear Records. Produced by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Grinderman stalwart Jim Sclavunos, the 10 tracks carry an intensity and edge that transcends mere rock platitudes. Blending elements of noise, minimalism , kraut rock and pop-punk, The Callas have found a highly unique sound. Dark, brooding lyrics and an authentic instrumental rawness pervade the tracks. This is one of those albums one must experience, as no written description can adequately describe the originality and quality of the band's music. Watch the video for the album track Disaster and then stream and buy Am I Vertical at the link below.
