Apparently, they have a full album ready for release in the autumn called The Book of the Forest, which is… Read More SpelZ Cover Camper Van Beethoven
We spent much of the weekend in the car driving hither and thither and listening to an advance copy of Rayland Baxter’s excellent new album Imaginary Man, which is out on ATO Records in the middle of next month. Treading a line somewhere between Bob Dylan, and the Shins, or maybe between Steve Earle and Beck,… Read More Rayland Baxter – Young Man
