It's the new Camper Van Beethoven CD, La Costa Perdida! I pre-ordered it a couple of weeks ago from Newbury Comics and it was well worth the wait. If you like The Beach Boys, The B 52's, Beck, and the Beatles' White Album, you will love La Costa Perdida. Check out the first single:
I highly recommend buying a hard copy in addition to an mp3. Why?
Because the CD features beautiful artwork by renowned children's book illustrator, Michael Wertz!
Michael illustrated the critically acclaimed children's books A Dazzling Display of Dogs and A Curious Collection of Cats. I think his next book should be A Hilarious Herd of Horses. What do you think?
Rocarra, Princess, and Ned said they'd love to model for Michael.
ps. I think Ned has a crush on the cover girl.
pps. Read the Wertzateria blog to learn more about Michael and his Camper Van Artwork.
ppps. Rocarra is also a big Sparklehorse fan.
