Princeton. It’s not just your grandfather’s school any more. Now it’s the name of a California band with a debut album called Bloomsbury.

The album is a four-song disc  “based on the lives of four members of the influential Bloomsbury intellectual collective of the early 20th century.”

Songs feature four well-known Bloomsbury figures — Virginia Woolf, Leonard Woolf, John Maynard Keynes and Lytton Strachey.

Song titles are: “The Waves,” “Leonard Woolf,” “Eminent Victorians,” and “Ms. Bentwich.”

Of the four, “The Waves” is the most popular one downloaded from iTunes. There, each song costs 99 cents. The whole disc can also be streamed from their Myspace page.
