McCabe & Mrs. Miller (Camper Van Beethoven and Sippy Cups Collaboration) Offer Free MP3 From Forthcoming Album
Time For Leaving is a broad, ambitious work that finds the San Francisco-based duo traveling across the rural backroads and steel rails of Americana music. Snaky blues numbers ("Fare Thee Well" and "Couldn't Sit Still") intertwine with bittersweet folk ballads ("Come Back Home To Me" and "Forgiveness"), two-step country ("Your Magic Fingers"), rootsy pop-rock ('Red Wine & Chocolate"), gentle acoustic instrumentals ("Union City Blues") and bawdy, backroom jazz ("Playground").
Between the touring schedules of both of their high-profile bands, they have found the time to perform with the likes of Cracker, Built to Spill and The Knitters. Their live show has evolved into a formidable, dramatic force. The band also includes Jonathan Segel (Camper Van Beethoven) on violin and mandolin, Doug Hilsinger on guitar, John Hanes on drums and Paul Olguin on bass. - Fare Thee Well MP3
