Although singer-songwriter Bill Callahan has put together fifteen studio albums, “Small Plane” is the first time he’s actually appeared in one of his music videos. It’s a track off Dream River, which Callahan released in September. Co-directed by Hanly Banks (former FADER TV producer!) the video unfolds in the style of a silent film, with Callahan’s contemplative crooning laying the mood for a love story that goes like this: factory worker Lindsey Urchinwear toils over a woodcarving for her crush Jaime McDashing, but her boss kicks her out before she can finish. She delivers McDashing a sign saying “I Love Yo,” sending him on a quest to discover the meaning of “Yo.” Grab a copy of Dream River via Drag City.
