iTunes Editors' Notes

The Memphis six-piece Lucero again hits the sweet spot between Southern rock and its hometown's gritty soul music on its ninth release, Women & Work. Sounding like a companion to 2009’s boogie-powered 1372 Overton Park with the heavy use of horns, barrelhouse piano, and B3 organ, the album moves another step away from the country punk of Lucero's early albums and fully embraces the band's Memphis roots. Crisp and twangy guitar licks and Ben Nichols’ gruff vocals remain Lucero's signature, as evident on the driving barroom standouts “On My Way Downtown,” “Juniper,” and the title track. These hard-drinking tales are countered by the harder comedowns detailed on the midtempo burners “It May Be Too Late,” “When I Was Young,” and “Sometimes.” The rousing gospel feel of the closer, “Go Easy,” sweetened by soulful, full-throated backing vocals, rounds out another solid, hard-charging album. These guys just can’t miss.

Every Album Gets Better

I heard Bikeriders on an FBM BMX video years ago and I've been hooked ever since. Lucero just keeps evolving into a bigger and richer production.

Formed by leader Ben Nichols in the late '90s, Lucero took their name from the Spanish word meaning "bright star." After releasing a single on the Landmark label, Lucero — rounded out by drummer Roy Berry, bassist...
