Double Lunch Presents:
Between the desert of British Columbia’s interior and Vancouver Island lies an expanse that has shaped a mindset not dissimilar from what’s commonly associated with southern California. The seemingly laid back lifestyles they share often mask a desperate search for meaning in the superficial, and hope amid cynicism.
Sam Weber’s new album, Valentina Nevada, embodies these themes, employing the Laurel Canyon sounds of Jackson Browne, the Eagles, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell as the foundation for a collection of songs that form a travelogue of the journey Weber and his band have been on for the past two years, both literally and metaphysically. .”
