Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
A new collection of Lydia Loveless' summery 5-song EP Boy Crazy, on vinyl LP for the first time, plus six non-album singles and B-sides, including original songs in addition to inventive and bare-bones covers of Prince, Elvis Costello, and Kesha. The recordings span from 2012 to 2015; many of which are on LP for the first time. The first pressing is on colored wax. Lydia and her band "rehearsed for about a week and then went into the studio with a couple thirty packs" when they recorded Boy Crazy, after all. Boy Crazy is Loveless' "rock and roll tribute to baseball pants and youth." Featuring sun-washed, rebel-powered pop songs presenting a conversation about judgment and loss of innocence, as one transitions from good old American naivete to you-should-knowbetter "wisdom." These songs see Lydia and her band roping in their signature twangy, pedal steel-laden rock beat-em-ups and tying them tightly with the crisp Southern air of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' Damn the Torpedoes and the snarling-but-sweet delivery of Juliana Hatfield's heyday.
