    Sometimes Good Weather Follows Bad People collected Califone's first two self-titled EPs, recapturing the band at the most reserved, tentative, and exploratory phase of its career. The 1998 material, particularly highlights like "Red Food Old Heat," lumbered with magnificent reality but rarely sounded obsessed over its own neuroses. Elsewhere, "Dock Boggs," "Electric Fence," and "Beneath the Yachtsman" from 2000 reminded listeners just how well Califone could flow through stained folk and approximate Grandaddy's "He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the Pilot" or a post-punk Red House Painters. Regrettably, the disc's two bonus tracks, the wobbly "When the Snakehandler Slips" and an unedited version of "To Hush a Sick Transmission," would offer little excitement for longtime fans. ~ Dean Carlson

  • Critic Reviews
    Pitchfork (Website) - "They took sonic inspiration from ancient folk 78s and Jamaican dub, along with songwriting and arrangement inspiration from Tom Waits, and came up with a fresh and affecting music that ranged from ethereal slowcore to blistering noise."
