Stereogum gives you a stream and download of another new Lydia Loveless song from her upcoming album 'Somewhere Else,' out February 18th. The song is called "Really Wanna See You Again," and it's a bona fide ripper.
According to our friends at Stereogum, it's "an example of a singer-songwriter in full control of her craft and a rock ’n’ roll band at the peak of its powers."
Sounds about right. For the entire album.
Lydia Loveless is on the front page of SPIN talking about trading banjos and fiddles for fuzzy layers of punk guitars on her forthcoming album 'Somewhere Else,' the album she wrote and scrapped prior to this one, almost losing her mind in 2013, and the minimal likelihood that she'll kick your ass...physically, that is.
It's a hell of an interview ahead of a hell of an album. Read it here.
Lydia Loveless is featured on the front page of SPIN as a Best New Artist of January 2014!
"Like so many young creatives mining the nooks and crannies of American roots music, it's easy to categorize it as "alt-country" in the sense that it looks to the past as much as the present to craft a sound of the future, but Loveless' emotional honesty and lithe genre-melding are indeed singular."
Amen. And Happy New Year.
