Lydia Loveless | Artist to Know
Some of the most exciting sounds being made are coming from this girl and her band. Lydia Loveless is an old school badass, there's nothing contrived about her or her band (to see, click here). Lydia and her bandmates give us a sense of relief that there are still musicians out there doing everything they can to make the best song possible, and play them in a way that lets you know they love what they're doing. There's no PR or management team dressing them and coordinating their act. They just play their songs and rock out. It's simple, and how we like it done.
Confident, vulnerable, angry and funny all wrapped up in pure talent. She kicks ass, her band kicks ass, what else do you need to know? If you like what you hear, do yourself a favor and see them live. It's a decision you will not regret. The Tiny Desk Concert is about a 2 out of 10 on a Loveless intensity scale.
Their new album titled "Real" is set to be released around September 2016. Benjamin Lamb, bass player and husband to Lydia Loveless, talks about their new album along with Lydia's career defining decision at their first SXSW appearance on our podcast, episode 1.
Here's some of our favorites
Like I said in the podcast with Benjamin Lamb, every single song off of the album "Somewhere Else" is a must listen. We don't review albums with grades, or on a scale of 1-10. But we do highly recommend, and we do this one.
