  • I have always tried to keep in the loop with artist that i have enjoyed in the past and sometimes it can lead to some very interesting discoveries
  • This odd little album from David Lowery is one of the latest things that i have ended up with and i have so far enjoyed it a fair bit
  • But it was the Cracker stuff that drew me to Lowery and even though i enjoy some of the Camper Van stuff it's not up to same level of quality for me
  • If you like any of the three above mentioned bands i recommend checking this album out at once and would also pass on a recommendation to fans of alternative folk music in general

      I have always tried to keep in the loop with artist that i have enjoyed in the past and sometimes it can lead to some very interesting discoveries. This odd little album from David Lowery is one of the latest things that i have ended up with and i have so far enjoyed it a fair bit.

      David Lowery is better known as the front man for a band called Cracker, who had some small success in the mid nineties, but he is also the founder


      of Camper Van Beethoven, who are bit less known but still very highly regarded and have a bit of cult following in certain parts of the world. But it was the Cracker stuff that drew me to Lowery and even though i enjoy some of the Camper Van stuff it’s not up to same level of quality for me.

      Lowery’s new album The Palace Guards basically splits the sound of both of the above mentioned bands straight down the middle and ends up being a pretty ...


      • unique folky, singer/songwriter type of this but with an alternative music edge. I compare this album to Elvis Costello mixed with David Bowie topped off with a bit of Burt Bacharach.

        If you like any of the three above mentioned bands i recommend checking this album out at once and would also pass on a recommendation to fans of alternative folk music in general. Some of the songs go beyond the usual singer/songwriter vibe and head more into some sort of garage rock feeling, but as

        an overall album it works very well.

        My favorite tracks were The Palace Guards, Ah You Left Me and I Sold The Arabs The Moon. If what i have said already isn’t enough motivation for you to go and check this album out, there’s nothing else i could say to convince you, but if however this review has at least piqued your interest, don’t let be another album that you forget to check out, go and do it now, we’ll still be here when you get back.
