Lucero

When You Found Me [LP]

Vinyl: $19.98 Buy

Video

Like the great river that flows through Memphis, the music of Lucero keeps rolling on, twisting and turning through the years, the same dark and brooding steadiness always at work. Since forming in late the 90s, this group of Memphis road-dogs has mixed heartfelt lyrics with the sounds of early rock and roll, classic punk, country-folk, and deep-fried Southern soul. Its a sound that stands on the pillars of American music, born more of feeling than technique, delivered night after night to legions of fans in dive bars and theaters, and on stages as august as Red Rocks Amphitheater and the Ryman. In short, its music that is built to last, impervious to trends. For their tenth studio album, When You Found Me, the band continues its natural evolution, this time tapping into a more atmospheric, widescreen vision (one that wouldnt seem out of place on a Reagan-era FM dial) while still staying tethered to its roots. I wanted a very classic rock sound for this album, says songwriter and frontman Ben Nichols. I wanted it to sound like stuff I heard on the radio growing up. I didnt want to make a retro record at all, but I did want to reference some of those sounds and tones and moods. I think we struck a nice balance between nostalgia and something that still sounds like contemporary Lucero.

Passenger

Songs For The Drunk And Broken Hearted [Deluxe 2CD]

Mike Rosenberg, better known as Passenger, is a multi-award winning, platinum-selling singer-songwriter from Brighton, England. Although still known for his busking, he long ago made the journey from street corners to stadiums most notably with 'Let Her Go', which reached number 1 in 19 countries and which has now notched more than two billion plays on YouTube. For his latest album "Songs For The Drunk and Broken Hearted" Rosenberg explains, I chose the album title because a lot of the songs are about drinking and the emotions felt around it he explains. There are personal references Rosenberg adds, Ive recently gone through a break-up, which is always a rough time but can actually be very inspiring too. I spent a few months going out and drinking too much which was fun and heartbreaking and awful all at once. Some of the material is personal and some of it is about other people, either people Ive met or fictional characters. Thats always been a Passenger thing: sad stories about people drenched in disappointment with that sense of what could have been.
