Califone

No, not the audio equipment company.

For those of you who don't know, Cat Eats Coyote is actually a track on Quicksand/Cradlesnakes by the band Califone. Although it's not so much a song as it is an interlude with what sounds like windchimes and a bunch of other strange noises.

Califone actually rose out of the ashes of the band Red Red Meat. That's a little misleading, however, because Califone is essentially just another reincarnation of Red Red Meat, as all the principle members have participated in both bands.

Anyway, the music of Califone has a beautifully rustic feel and their sound in rooted in country, blues, and folk. Their debut album Roomsound is being reissued on Thrill Jockey on February 21st. Check them out.
