Another Friday means more new music! Being terrible at this, I managed to miss two albums coming out today in my last New Music Friday post.
Out today: Among the Ghosts by Lucero.
Lucero’s music has been described as “distinctly Memphisian.” Works for me. I have fond memories of drinking at a blues bar on Beale Street on a rare snowy New Years Eve in Memphis before returning to our sketchy-ass AirBNB where maybe someone was murdered next door that night.
Check out a couple songs on YouTube:
To My Dearest Wife
For the Lonely Ones
You can order Among the Ghosts from Amazon.
To the Sunset by Amanda Shires is also out today and available from Amazon.
