Lucero Announces New Album “All A Man Should Do” and North American Tour

“I was 15 years old in 1989. This record sounds like the record I wanted to make when I was 15. It just took 25 years of mistakes to get it done.” – Ben Nichols


Pre-Order on iTunes | Amazon | Official Website

Following the release of 2012’s Women and Work, Lucero’s new album All A Man Should Do contains some of the most resonant lyrics Ben Nichols has ever written. They read like chapters from his life: the duality of relationships, getting older, finding where you want to be in this world and more.

Working with producer Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Flogging Molly) for a third time at Memphis’s Ardent Studios, the band felt comfortable enough to take some chances with a palette of new tones that sound understated yet powerful, bringing life to the stories behind the lyrics without overshadowing them. Listen to the soulful track “Went Looking For Warren Zevon’s Los Angeles” below.

And for the first time they put a cover song on a record, with a full band version of Big Star’s “I Fell in Love with a Girl”. The track features Jody Stephens from Big Star singing back-up vocals, making it that much more special.

This is a Memphis record in the greatest sense and a perfect finish to the three-part love letter to a city that brought them up and made Lucero what they are today.

Watch Benjamin Booker’s short film music video “The Future Is Slow Coming”

We’re very excited to share the NPR premier of Benjamin Booker‘s new short film “The Future Is Slow Coming”, featuring the songs “Slow Coming” and “Wicked Waters”. NPR’s Ann Powers describes it as “a kind of mash-up of Selma and Beasts of the Southern Wild, with Booker as an unwilling time traveler recalling both the segregated Deep South and current controversial police actions.

“The first song, “Slow Coming” was written before Eric Garner or Michael Brown were killed, when I first moved to New Orleans in 2012. I was seeing friends fight for gay rights. I was seeing people who immigrated to the States struggle for decent wages and a good education. I was seeing an astounding amount of gun violence and people marching on the streets of Central City for a stop to the crime.
I know the difference between right and wrong and I couldn’t understand how these issues I was reading about in books about the 1950s, from people like James Baldwin, could still be unresolved.” – Benjamin Booker

Watch Fly Golden Eagle’s New Video for “Tangible Intangible”

In their new video for the song “Tangible Intangible”, Fly Golden Eagle has pulled out all the stops: back-up dancers, bathtubs of Pepto Bismol, spitting teeth, cake smashing, synchronized hair cutting and other off the wall imagery showcase what their psychedelic fever dreams are made of. Shot entirely on the iPhone of lead singer Ben Trimble, you can watch + share it HERE courtesy of BrooklynVegan.

“Why wait for people to do what you can do yourself?” explained Trimble when discussing his directorial vision for the video. “The divide between lyrics, music, and visual imagery is now dissolved and poetry triumphs like Orion’s belt’s knife.”


“Tangible Intangible” is featured on Quartz, a 26-song epic collection of songs that join together to form a narrative arc describing a story that is sometimes vulgar, sometimes profane, and sometimes beautiful. A more condensed 12-song version was also released titled Quartz Bijou.

The album lines up with the groundbreaking 1973 film The Holy Mountain, an avant-garde masterpiece directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky, produced by The Beatles’ manager Allen Klein, and funded by John Lennon and George Harrison.

This summer Fly Golden Eagle will be making festival appearances at Forecastle, XPoNential Fest, Gathering of the Vibes, the Basilica Block Party and more. All upcoming tour dates can be found below, and tickets are available at their website.

Watch Rhett Miller’s New Video for “Most in the Summertime” at Salon

Head to Salon to watch the new music video for Rhett Miller‘s “Most in the Summertime”, directed by Max Nichols. A standout track from Miller’s latest solo album The Traveler, the warm, bouncy song with darker undertones now has a video to match.

Rhett Miller’s new album, The Traveler, is out now. After twenty years as the lead singer and guitarist of the Old 97’s, Miller’s restless drive to create meaningful music and perform for the audiences it inspires is clearly nowhere near slowing down.

Although the album was written and performed by Miller he also had some help, most notably by the members of Black Prairie, the Portland-based that plays everything from bluegrass to klezmer to country and shares members with the Decemberists. Peter Buck of REM also added additional guitar work. All upcoming tour dates are listed below.

Pick up The Traveler on iTunes | Amazon | Official Store


Rhett Miller is the type of singer/songwriter whom would need no introduction in a just world – but life’s not fair and his string of mini-masterpieces solo and with the Old 97’s have found a sizable cult audience with songs that deserve to make him a household name. – SPIN
