Americana troubadour Austin Lucas returns to UK later this week for a series of dates before moving on the European mainland, he’s back in town to promote the new album Between the Moon and The Midwest, the new album see’s Austin take a side-step into country territory with a wonderful collection of ‘proper’ songs, the heartaches for real, classic country stylings are deftly overlaid with that magical Cosmic American dust that shines a spotlight on the songs and the stories they tell.
Austin Lucas – Unbroken Hearts
The song sequencing is just perfect on this album – with the tracks flowing perfectly from the opening lament of Unbroken Heart to the closer, and arguably the best track, Midnight.
Recorded with the help of Joey Kneiser and featuring guest appearances from a number of other Beat Surrender favourites including John Moreland, Lydia Loveless and Cory Branan it’s a record to fall in love with after a single play and one you’ll return to play over and over – highly recommended.
“Lonely” is the first single from the upcoming album release, “Don’t Be Afraid”. (Release date: 25 September 2015)
This song was begun in 1972 by a young Ron Neilson, who recorded a demo outside a hotel room while on tour across Canada. Decades later, it was completed by his daughter Tami and son Jay when they discovered the demo a week after he passed away in Feb 2015. While grief and loss are entwined in a melancholy dance throughout the lyrics, the music and melody are brought back to life to celebrate the man who laid the foundations of Tami’s musical career. Released on Ron’s birthday, Tami remembers her father in this fitting tribute.

Legends Of Country are a band formed by Jof Owen from indie pop group The Boy Least Likely To. Inspired by a long standing love of country music and memories of growing up watching Pebble Mill and listening to Johnny Cash and George Hamilton IV. With dobro guitars, pedal steel and mariachi trumpets blasting away, their songs combine a classic earthy country sound with an honest and unmistakeable English indie pop charm.
