Princeton :: "Calypso Gold"

It is appropriate we close the whole 32ft West experiment with an LA band. Princeton, named for the street in Santa Monica where certain members of the band grew up, is a little slice of sweeping indie-pop. There are rich strings out of the George Harrison catalogue and flourishing guitars that sit high in the mix and don't leave. The arrangment pulses and waits and pulses and waits and, in this way, it has a sense of drama. On the whole (and I've driven on their street for one thing or another), it's a great little summer song. And it will always make me think of beaches, 73 and sunny, paddle tennis and this city. It's been fun, folks. I thank you.
