Cracker - Waited My Whole Life, Almond Grove and 12 or so More

Cracker's David Lowery is at the forefront of the movement to ensure that artists can get paid fairly in today's digital world. And no wonder. Lowery works his butt off. Cracker is releasing their new album Berkeley to Bakersfield December 9. His other band, Camper Van Beethoven, unleashed La Costa Perdida in 2013 and El Camino Real earlier this year. He even dropped a solo record, The Palace Guards, in 2011.

The most amazing thing to me is that the music is all good. Don't take my word for it, listen below, 2 new ones and a bunch of older ones. Check out this pretty good little story in Rolling Stone Country.

Waited My Whole Life

Here's another new one:

Almond Grove

Yalla Yalla

Sunrise in the Land OF Milk and Honey

Euro-trash Girl

I dig this live version of Euro-Trash Girl.

Turn On Tune In Drop Out With Me

Get Off This

Here's some Camper Van Beethoven:

Someday Our Love will Sell Us Out

Northern California Girls

It was Like That When We Got Here

Good Guys and Bad Guys
