BELL YEAH—Local laidback rockers Celilo started working on Buoy Bell way back in 2009, but the recording process took a devastating setback when drummer Kipp Crawford was killed in a hit-and-run accident. Now two years later the band has recovered the best they could and are prepared to share this wonderfully layered recording—with elements of spacious folk and dirt road Americana. EAC
