Lucero’s latest EP Texas & Tennessee is an instant classic. This four song collection is a prime example of how great this band can be. On the heals of 2012’s Women & Work, Texas & Tennessee puts back some of the edge and bite that was missing from last year’s full-length back into the mix. This EP encompasses everything that is great about Lucero – lovelorn and whiskey soaked lyrics; music that perfectly blends southern rock, country, and soul played with the heart of classic punk; and production that sounds great without sounding slick. This is the kind of record that I can listen to over and over and over again and never grow tired of hearing. Do yourself a favor and get this EP.
