about

Initially released as a 2-CD set from Floating World UK in 2017.

A double album of songs and music about the significance and insignificance of love, life and, well, everything.

Superfluity, the album, takes the long view. In the long view, love, and even life itself are just the overflow of the stars and their planets, balls of rocks and gas circling around the universe. We people do have a tendency to dwell only on our own little lives at the expense of the world around us and its continuation. “It could be a garden!”

Aren’t we lucky to be alive at all? We really should enjoy it.

The songs contain universes; it’s been over 30 years since Camper Van Beethoven began making records, and more than 25 years since Jonathan’s first “solo” album, Storytelling (1988), and all of the music in between informs the songs here. Jonathan brings a whole lot of guitars and basses, some violin and synthesizer, and an awful lot of studio expertise—complete with a dash of musique concrete thrown in.
Drumming from Mattias Olsson (Änglagård, Pineforest Crunch, Necromonkey) and Chris Pedersen (Camper Van Beethoven, Monks of Doom), combined with the beautiful voice of Kelly Atkins (20 Minute Loop, Kitka) means that the tracks are strong while both simple and complex at the same time. The deeper you dig, the more you will find.

It’s a child’s-eye view of the beauty of the end of the world.
