New Lucero! Rebels, Rogues and Sworn Brothers

As previously mentioned, blog-favorite Lucero recently went into the studio to record a new album with David Lowery (of Camper Van Beethoven and Cracker fame) producing. reports that the album is just about done, and a title and release date have been set:
Lucero will be back in action with a new album this fall.

The alt-country band put the finishing touches on its Rebels, Rogues and Sworn Brothers, working with producer David Lowery. It’s set for a Sept. 26 release from East West Records. A track listing has not been revealed.
Will this finally be the album that breaks the band? Hope so.

Seriously, folks, this is one of the best rock bands going these days. If you consider yourself a fan of Uncle Tupelo, Whiskeytown, early Replacements, or Drive By Truckers - or just good, pure, true-to-life rock and roll - you owe it to yourself to give these guys a serious listen.

Here's a few songs to get you started:

"California" [from Nobody's Darlings, 2005]

"All These Love Songs" [from Lucero, 2001]

"Chain Link Fence" [from Tennessee, 2002]

I'm a huge fan, so take that into consideration. I'm also a musician and a huge music snob as well... also a matter to consider. However i can say beyond a shadow of a doubt this is best rock band in America and this is their best work to date. The songs have matured as i'm sure the boys have. Ben Nichols is a freakin' genius and the band are a perfect complement to his songs and they're all great musicians too. If you know anything about and respect american music and songwriting as a true form of art then you should listen to everything this band has ever put out. Plus, they do it themselves... no labels, no bs, just good old fashioned ass-bustin'.
