Kirin J Callinan Announces New Album Bravado, Releases “S.A.D.” Video
A great Kirin J Callinan single just got promoted to title track of the Australian absurdist’s second album. Bravado is out June 9 from Terrible Records and features a bunch of guest stars from indie’s left field (Mac DeMarco, Weyes Blood, Connan Mockasin, Alex Cameron, Sean Nicholas Savage, Owen Pallett), as well as No Wave saxophonist James Chance and noted whistler Molly Lewis.
Callinan’s previous album was 2013’s Eracism. Today’s announcement comes with a new video for the song “S.A.D.,” featuring Callinan cavorting in Cuba. (Before you watch it at work, his publicists would like to warn you there’s a little dick slip at the 2:50 mark.)
Correction: The Molly Lewis featured on Callinan’s album is professional whistler Molly Lewis, not professional YouTube ukulele player Molly Lewis.
