Califone's latest album, All My Friends Are Funeral Singers, isn't the soundtrack to songwriter Tim Rutilli's indie film debut of the same title, but it may as well be. It's a haunted house of an album. Electronic sounds simultaneously shatter and enhance the quartet's rickety acoustic laments, reflecting the movie's restless spirits. A tribute to director Luis Buñuel tips a hat to his cinematic antecedents. (The band will accompany the film at the IFC Center tomorrow night.) Chicago trio Sonoi puts a Krautrock spin on spare songs and a jangly guitar.
