Album Review

Wildewoman, the Mom + Pop-issued debut long-player from stylish Brooklyn-based indie pop outfit Lucius, is a strange beast. On the one hand, it's an evocative, sepia-toned torch ballad of a record that invokes names like Neko Case and Phil Spector, and on the other, it flirts with propulsive, Santigold-kissed R&B and dense, '80s-fueled, Killers-esque melodrama. As polarizing as the sudden shifts in style can be, it's hard not to get caught up in the luster of it all, as co-frontwomen and Berklee College of Music voice majors Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig are both formidable sirens who can croon, coo, comfort, and howl with the best of them, and when paired with the lush chamber/electro-pop production and meticulously detailed playing from drummer Danny Molad and guitarists Peter Lalish and Andrew Burri, the results can be dizzying. Wildewoman is at its best when all of the group's proclivities are tossed into the pot, re-seasoned, and simmered until done, and songs like the propulsive "Turn It Around," the lush title cut, and the roaring "Tempest" navigate the spaces between those predilections with great aplomb, creating a surprisingly listenable hybrid of country, new wave, AOR pop, and NPR-baiting indie rock in their wake. When the group shimmies back down to O Brother, Where Art Thou? territory, like on the bluesy "Go Home," the Lumineers-inspired "Two of Us on the Run," and, to a lesser extent, the atmospheric and vaudevillian "Monsters," Wildewoman can feel a little rote, but to its credit, never dull, due in large part to Wolfe and Laessig's commanding performances.

Customer Reviews

Anxiously Awaited

I've so far greatly enjoyed their EP. They clearly put a great deal of time and thought into each song. It's so very unusual to find such great songs that have driving melodies, haunting and beautiful harmonies, thumping and thrumming rhythms. Each song seems to have ALL of these qualities, not just one or two. This is such a rare occurence. It's easy to find one, maybe even two factors, but to find all of them is to discover a gem. They also tend to evoke the notion that you know exactly what the songwriters are feeling because you've been there yourself. I'm very excited to see what these ladies have in store for us next!

For those so concerned about the artwork, maybe try listening to the music!

Just buy it.

The future of music. I know it's a bold statement but this group is such gift to modern pop/rock music. It gives me hope. If you ever have the chance to see them live you better go. Phenomenal live band.

Great Voices, Terrible Engineering

I am a new fan to Lucius having discovered them via a NYT article during the Summer. The Wild Honey Pie video of the group singing "Two of Us on the Run" had me hooked. So I marked my calendar for the release of Wildewoman. Their voices are so clean, pristine, beautiful, harmonic and emotional.

The album downloaded on iTune almost makes me think it was a early file. Balance of instruments to voices is weighted way too heavily to the percussion and instrumentation and covers their elegant voices. Sudden volume increased during breaks is not enjoyable at all. It is simply poorly engineered and produced.

If the file was not a mistake, then I eagerly await an unplugged version of the album.

Sorry ladies as I really love your voices. I just want to enjoy their purity of sound. In the mean time I am hoping to see you live.

Featuring a pair of alluring frontwomen in Berklee College of Music voice majors Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, Brooklyn-based indie pop quintet Lucius, which also relies on the talents of drummer Dan Molad and guitarists Peter Lalish and Andrew Burri, specializes in an evocative mix of torchy, pedal steel-infused Americana and beguiling, urban indie pop that falls somewhere between Neko Case, Blanche, and Cults.
