David Lowery :: The Palace Guards


David Lowery heeft prachtige platen gemaakt met zijn bands Camper Van Beethoven en Cracker. Nu hij 50 is, vond hij het tijd voor een solo-CD. The Palace Guards is het verbluffende resultaat. Een combinatie van popliedjes, Beatles-achtige melodieën, Americana en eigenzinnigheid a la Syd Barrett (luister naar het titelnummer). En natuurlijk is er Lowery’s gevoel voor humor, dat hem nooit in de steek laat (I Sold The Arabs The Moon). The Palace Guards is een muzikaal avontuur zonder grenzen.

After years of helping steer the lauded and eclectic careers of both of his bands, Cracker and  Camper Van Beethoven, co-founder and frontman David Lowery has seen fit to present a collection of songs recorded apart from those iconic alternative rock entities.  Stopping short of calling it a solo record, Lowery has collaborated with a handful of trusted musical cohorts associated with his Richmond, Virginia-based studio, Sound of Music—an inner circle that has Lowery has relied on for over seventeen years and who’ve been instrumental in helping create the sounds heard on this album as well as past projects. David recorded and produced The Palace Guards  in conjunction with John Morand and Alan Weatherhead.  Key players include Miguel Urbiztondo on drums, David Immergluck on guitars and bass, Craig Harmon played organs and Ferd Moyse on upright bass and fiddle.   Special guest appearances include Cracker mates Sal Maida and Johnny Hickman as well.
