From Lucero’s new album “All A Man Should Do” available on Sept 18th. Lucero is an American country-punk rock band based in Memphis, Tennessee. Lucero’s sound has been described as a “synthesis of soul, rock, and country [that] is distinctly Memphisian


The Lone Bellow’s second album is a real treat. Call it country; call it gospel-blues, call it rock, call it what you will because `Then Came The Morning’ manages to be all these and more without ever having to strain to be anything other than what it is, and what it is is damned fine music, sung and played with unadulterated passion.

There are thirteen numbers in the set; all as good as one another; not a wasted moment for the discerning listener. That’s a tough call in a World full of good stuff but this extraordinarily talented Brooklyn-based ensemble : Zach Williams, Kanene Donehey and Brian Elmquist, make it all seem so natural and magically inevitable.

Some of the songs sound as old as the hills; instant timeless classics fresh out of the mould. Take a composition like “Marietta’, where three voices intertwine with such unaffected pathos .Get an earful of the tumultuous `Heaven Don’t Call Me Home’ and see if it doesn’t make you want to holler along with them! `Cold As It Is’, too, has the kind rousing riff to make your knees tremble and the touching vocal from Ms Donehey on `Call To War’ will make your heart flutter. The gorgeous `Telluride’, however, is the album’s defining moment and still centre;
a song so beautiful it deserves to have a space of its own in a quiet corner of Heaven.
Take my word for it, `Then Came The Morning’ is one of the finest things you’ll hear this year.

Immigrant Union are a psychedelic folk band from Melbourne Australia featuring Brent DeBoer from The Dandy Warhols. Like Spiritualized being baptised in a river of Creedence Clearwater.

Immigrant Union’s started with a few drinks. And… maybe a few dozen more drinks. The story got a little more interesting when the duo started turning simple chords and melodies into completed songs. And then polished recordings of those songs.
In the summer of 2004 when Brent DeBoer of The Dandy Warhols was killing some time in Australia and had a chance meeting with Melbourne’s Bob Harrow. They acquired the talented vocalist and keyboard player, Peter Lubulwa, and the band quickly planted its roots in alt-country-folk, bound by a communal love for classic rock and roll.
Countless shows later, Immigrant Union have now supported Noel Gallagher, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Dead Meadow and toured their own headline shows, the band have naturally progressed into the next chapter of their story: realising their second album, and keeping their eyes fixed on the international touring circuit ahead.
Immigrant Union’s upcoming album is a shift from previous recordings – moving away from the country end of the sound spectrum, they approached their second record with a desire to produce a more layered, trippier sound,  the band went literally to the farthest reaches of the earth: to Brent’s hometown in Portland, Oregon and to Altona on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia.
With singles coming out in the US from June, Immigrant Union will be releasing ‘Anyway’ in September 2014 followed by appearances at The Americana Music Festival in Nashville in September and a national tour of the USA in October.
