EP Review: Texas & Tennessee

Title:  Texas & Tennessee (Official, Amazon, iTunes)

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.
