California Snow Story – Suddenly Everything Happens

Before I slid over to their myspace California Snow Story had me thinking about some wee Glaswegian giants. Well giants in a small indie pool anyway, it’s hard imagine anyone listening to ‘Suddenly Everything Happens’ without recourse to thoughts of Camera Obscura or Belle & Sebastian (Stereolab at times too). And for this we should be thankful as a tune as preciously delivered as this one will always find a corner on twee pop hard drives. Then you discover that Calfornia Snow Story mainman David Skirving was actually a founding member of Camera Obscura before jumping ship and following his own destiny in 2001. Thusfar he has found himself on 2 of our favourite labels Shelflife and Letterbox Records. The latter was responsible for putting out the band’s debut album ‘Close To The Ocean’ early this summer. Band you say, well Skirving now has a little gang that includes Sandra Belda Martínez who is reponsible for catering to dreamers of all things girl next door. KD

    Love this song, most everything they do is good. Camera Obscura is also awesome, even more so. How good would they be if Skirving was still in it? Take care.Jeff
