Alternative rock pioneers Camper Van Beethoven have returned with their 8th studio album. It steeps their connection to Northern California, specifically the areas where the band first nurtured their musical talents in Redlands, Santa Cruz and San Francisco. The band fills in the dramatic, joyous interpersonal and psychological aspects of the locals as only they can. "...It does illustrate how unique this band still is, 30 years after it formed."--Pitchfork.
