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. Aversion.com 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.Will this finally be the album that breaks the band? Hope so.
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.
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]
