SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Celebrating their 30 year anniversary, indie rock pioneers Camper Van Beethoven have returned with a new album, "LA COSTA PERDIDA"—their 429 Records debut which will be available everywhere tomorrow, January 22nd.  The album has already garnered media and radio accolades and buzz with rave reviews in Spin Magazine and Pitchfork as well as key radio airplay at WFUV and KFOG.  Says Spin:  "They finally bring it all back home to their native California on their 10th album, recalling '60's vintage West Coast pop filtered through their timeless, idiosyncratic prism."


The lineup, featuring Victor Krummenacher (bass, baritone guitar), Greg Lisher (guitars), David Lowery (guitars and vocals), Chris Pedersen (drums), Jonathan Segel (violin, guitar, mandolin, organ, backing vocals) and Michael Urbano (drums and percussion), have reunited and created their most cohesive album yet. This album, their eighth studio album and first since 2004, is steeped in their connection to Northern California, specifically the areas where the band members first nurtured their musical talents—Redlands, Santa Cruz and San Francisco. With a geographical jumping off point, the band fills in the dramatic, joyous, interpersonal and psychological aspects of the locales as only CVB can. The ten tracks on "LA COSTA PERDIDA" were produced by the band and recorded in the Oakland home studio of Jonathan Segel.
