Editors’ Notes

Lydia Loveless' sophomore release, Indestructible Machine, sees the alt-country spitfire exploding into a country-punk fireball. “Bad Way To Go” makes clear the road ahead. There are more barbed-wire guitars, more songs with Loveless spewing what’s on her mind with the color of a gin-soaked sailor on leave, and truckloads more of her redhaired fury. Loveless easily earns the “punk” half of the country-punk label here (she did do some time as a youth the punk scene of Columbus, Ohio). Songs like “Can’t Change Me” and “More Like Them” are full of big, chugging guitars and aggressive percussion; “Jesus Was a Wino” and “Do Right” surge on amphetamine snares and nervy banjo. When Loveless isn’t telling funny stories (the fictional “Steve Earle” is a hoot) or delivering a verbal bitch-slap with her powerhouse voice, she’s lamenting another hangover or her bad behavior. “My mouth is like a sinking boat / I keep pouring words out, hopin’ I can keep afloat,” she almost apologizes. We forgive you, Lydia. Carry on.

Customer Reviews

Anti Swift

Lydia Loveless is everything female country artists arn't these days, she's whiskey soaked, foul mouthed and intelligent. This is the album that would make Taylor Swift run screaming for the hills. The tales here are about drunken nights, foggy mornings, heartbreak and one of America's greatest songwriters who just won't leave her alone ("Steve Earle"). The sound on this album is classic alt country, think the Old 97's in their prime fronted by a woman. Lydia's voice is a knock out, and to think that she is capable of work this strong at 21 shows much promise. Once again Bloodshot Records have hit a home run. Do yourself a favor and check this one out, you won't regret it!

Love this music...

Lydia Loveless sings songs with a mix of country and punk. These are good songs - gems! You'll wanna be listenin' to this one at your next hoe-down! Be one of the first to turn your friends on to Lydia Loveless. They will love you for it!!! And I gotta feelin' that Ms. Loveless won't be love-less for very long!

Best record of 2011

This record slays from track one straight through Crazy. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll hit rewind. Lydia's honey tinged voice soars like an angel but the gritty, cagey lyrics from this preternaturally wise artist won't fit in too many houses of worship. The band offers righteously rockin' support the likes of which was lacking from her 2010 release. Stop reading and start downloading.


Born: September 4, 1990 in Coshocton, OH

Genre: Singer/Songwriter

Years Active: '10s

Firebrand alt-country singer Lydia Loveless combines the honky tonk sound and style of classic country stars like Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline with the no-quarter attitude and spunk of punk rock divas such as Exene Cervenka and Carla Bozulich. Lydia Loveless was born in Coschocton, Ohio in 1990; she was raised on a farm, but her father was also a music fan who booked bands at a local bar, and Lydia became accustomed early on to seeing bands play and discovering an out-of-town act asleep on the living-room...
