About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: May 24, 2011
  • Artist / Band: David Lowery
  • Hosting Show: Train of Thought
  • Sound: Jon Valley

David Lowery is a busy guy. Over the recent decades he's worked as singer, songwriter and guitarist for alt-rock icons Camper Van Beethoven and Cracker, and produced records for artists like Lucero and Sparklehorse.

He's been so busy, in fact, that he didn't get around to releasing a solo record until earlier this year. It was worth the wait.

Lowery's solo debut, The Palace Guards, features his trademark wry, almost deadpan delivery and acerbic, introspective, literate lyrics, wrapped in a variety of styles, from country to Celtic, with touches of current and vintage Brit Pop woven through. The result is a lot like what you'd expect from a self-described introvert who claims to be happier in the studio than on the stage. At once dense and spare, the songs are tightly crafted and honed to a fine edge.

Lowery has said his solo venture doesn't spell the end of either of his other bands. That's a good thing to be sure, but here's hoping it doesn't take another 20-something years for him to get around to recording again under his own name.

David Lowery performs in St. Louis at the Duck Room on May 24.
