"Calla is a three-piece band with Aurelio Valle (guitar/vocals), Wayne B. Magruder (drums/ programming/ percussion), and Sean Donovan (keyboard/bass/programming).The three roommates formed Calla at the end of 1997 and recorded their debut LP throughout 1998 at their home in Brooklyn. Calla's self-titled debut was released in mid 1999 on Quatermass. Their second album Scavengers was co-produced by Michael Gira of Swans' fame and released in 2001 on Quatermass (on Young God in the USA). For their new project Calla let other renowned artists like I-Sound, Pan American, Couch and Tarwater transform their 'Radiohead-meets-Nick Cave'-like songs into something quite new and exhilarating. Electronic sounds melt together with Calla's unique fragile sensibility. All of the original songs are treated with great respect, nevertheless some of them are reconstructed in a totally different form leaving nothing but the spirit of the originals intact. This is music for anyone interested in great songwriting and modern electronica."
