Camper Van Beethoven co-founder and multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Segel will release not only a full solo album, but also an instrumental EP on March 6 via Magnetic records.
The vocal LP, All Attractions, was mostly written in the Swedish countryside and features a number of guest musicians including CVB bandmate Victor Krummenacher on bass and guitar, Counting Crows’ David Immergluck on vocals and Built To Spill’s Brett Netson on the track “I Know You Know Me (Hey You),” just to name a few.
The bonus instrumental EP entitled Apricot Jam pays homage to George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass album (which we quite like) in the form of seven improvised jams between him and John Hanes (drums), Krummenacher (bass) and Graham Connah (Hammond organ).
Segel will perform solo and with CVB at the first annual Camp-In in Athens, Ga. March 1-3, but in the meantime, check out the album information and stream/download his first single, “(Ever and) Always” below.
