David Lowery saw no reason to make a solo album.
For more than 25 years, he’s been recording and releasing music with his bands Camper Van Beethoven and Cracker – a pair of “very diverse and flexible ensembles,” he said in a phone interview last week. “And so usually pretty much any piece of music I write, I can kind of put it with either one of the bands or the other.”
And both bands remain active, regularly touring together since 2002. “I know the Cracker and Camper audiences overlap like 90 percent,” he said. “And it’s just a little artificial sometimes to feel like, ‘Tonight the billboard says Cracker, and we’re only going to play Cracker songs.’”
But in February, at age 50, Lowery released under his own name The Palace Guards, a collection of nine songs that, he has said, gives “a sense of what it is that I’m kind of bringing to the bands.”
