California is now available digitally on iTunes. The earlier released single, “Catcher In the Rye,” is also available digitally on iTunes.
The album isn’t officially released until next Tuesday, but you can stream it now over at NME (click image above). I’m digging the opening track and am happy with it’s placement. “Tonight’s The Kind Of Night” reminds me of classic 80s rock, listen to the guitar riff in the chorus, you’ll hear it. “L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.” has a cool Tom Petty vibe. “Wild Thing” continues the similarity to Tom Petty; only this time throwing in a tiny bit of Springsteen. I like the new album, though I gotta say it’s not what I expected. “Give It All Back” is one of those “looking back” kind of songs. Though, I guess if you think about it, they all are; the album is called Last Night on Earth. ”Just Me Before We Met” jumps out at me; it is so beautiful (with out being slow and sappy, of course). The violin used in the track just adds another layer of character that makes this song probably my favorite from the album. “Paradise Stars” is a sweet little instrumental interlude before the winding down with the last three songs. The final track, “Old Joy” is a bit too morose for my taste, but I guess it’s a good way to end the album…the “last night on Earth.”
