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.
Austin Lucas returns to the UK this month after a sell-out show with Emily Barker last month at Kings Place in London. The Indiana born songwriter whose album, Stay Reckless, was released in the UK on New West late last year has been gaining plaudits all around the world with his unique brand of roots music.
