Lucius took Newport Folk Festival by storm this weekend, sharing the stage with Mavis Staples, Tweedy, Deer Tick, along with their own stellar performance (which landed them on Billboard’s “10 Best Performances of Newport Folk Festival” run-down)

Newport Folk Festival was actually the second time we’ve seen Lucius collaborate with Tweedy (aka Jeff Tweedy of Wilco and his son, Spencer) in the past week, with the girls also appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to provide back-up to Tweedy’s “High as Hello”.

And, as if the line-up of legends already mentioned weren’t quite enough, JD McPherson today shared an intimate collaborative performance of Buddy Holly’s “It Doesn’t Matter Anymore”, featuring JD alongside the likes of Lucius, and Jimmy Sutton.

Watch Lucius perform “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)”, Paul Krugman is a fan

December 9th 2013

Having opened 2012 with a sold out show at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg, Lucius last night ended what has been a spectacular year for them with two sold out dates at New York’s Bowery Ballroom.

Their spectacular performance left Paul Krugman positively gushing over on his NY Times blog — “Wow. I think that may have been the best musical performance of any kind I’ve ever seen. If you’ve watched any of the videos I’ve posted, you know that they are incredible musicians. What you can’t quite get from the videos is the sheer joyousness of the whole thing — the band’s energy, the obvious fun they’re having, the rapport with the audience. At the end of the set the band moved out to do two songs — “two of us on the run” and John Lennon’s Happy Xmas — standing in the middle of the audience, and it was like a benediction.”

You can watch the aforementioned in-crowd John Lennon cover now, thanks to one very helpful fan on the internet. Thanks fan. Thanks internet.

November 5th 2013

10444855755_5aa0dcd683_b

Hear Lucius perform “Turn It Around”, “Go Home”, and “How Loud Your Heart Gets” live for 88.1 KDHX.

In this intimate setting, all of the soulful riffs and deep harmonies become even more pronounced. The group leads things off with “Turn It Around,” a concise and playful track about losing control. They followed with the minimalist “Go Home,” which leaves the listener entranced in improvised slide guitar and haunting vocals. To close the set, the group ran through “How Loud Your Heart Gets,” a genre-spanning track that shows off their full range of tones.

Lucius’ debut album “Wildewoman” is out now, and is available for a limited time for only $5 on Amazon. Be quick, the offer only lasts until November 15!
