In Their Words: "'Nevada City,' in its simplest form, is a song about the freewheeling adventure and camaraderie of the great American road trip. A product of our own attempt to feel first hand what we found in the work of Robert Frank, Jack Kerouac, Walker Evans, and John Steinbeck. The uninhibited magic of hurling down the highway, watching the West pass by the windshield for hours."
Instructions: Find a desert sunrise and drive into it while you listen to this one.
