While his nearest thing to a love song might be “Take the Skinheads Bowling,” alt-rock pioneer David Lowery will spend Valentine’s Day in Minnesota once again celebrating the ties that bind his two bands of lore: ’80s psychedelic gypsy-pop cult fave Camper Van Beethoven and ’90s rock-radio staple Cracker. While Cracker had the hits, including “Low” and“Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now),” CVB has the strong new album to promote. “La Costa Perdida” shows off how much the band has grown as musicians even as the frontman’s wonderfully oblique writing style remains intact.
