DAVID LOWERY PROVIDES SPOTIFY WITH COMMENTARY AS "NORTHERN CALIFORNIA GIRLS" SINGLE RELEASES
HOW BAD ACID, A BIRD TRAPPED IN A HOUSE IN NORTHERN CA, AND VIPER-BITES IN SWEDEN INSPIRED "TOO HIGH FOR THE LOVE-IN"
Indie rock originators Camper Van Beethoven's new album 'La Costa Perdida' is out next week and Stereogum has debuted the first downloadable mp3, which Michael Nelson calls "a swirling, Eastern-flavored psychedelic jam."
SPIN has posted a full-album stream and Q&A with David Lowery. David Menconi writes, "They finally bring it all back home to their native California on 10th album, recalling '60s-vintage West Coast pop filtered through their timeless, idiosyncratic prism."
Meanwhile, Spotify has the "Northern California Girls (radio edit)" single and "Too High For The Love-In" alongside David Lowery's commentary on both tracks. He explains how a bad acid trip, a bird trapped in a house in northern California, a venom bite in Sweden, and an insatiable desire for a sandwich came together in writing the latter.
Members of REM, Pavement, Built To Spill, The Decemberists, and Divine Fits toasted the band on its 30th anniversary.
