Lucius cover The Kinks “Strangers”, filmed collaboratively by the crowd

October 6th 2014

Normally people complain about how no one can watch a band perform without viewing it through their phones the entire time, but occasionally that works out nicely for all concerned. When Lucius came together to perform a cover of The Kinks ‘Strangers’ as part of the Lagunitas Sessions, so many fans wanted to commemorate the moment, that they reached out to them to compile the footage together for the video below. – caption via premiere outlet Bullett.

As previously announced, Lucius are set to release a deluxe edition of their debut album “Wildewoman” later this month, with five special bonus tracks. Although the wonderful Kinks cover above does not feature, stunning renditions My Morning Jacket’s “Wonderful”, Tears For Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”, and Buddy Holly’s “It Doesn’t Matter Any More” will be included, alongside a handful of of special live recordings and remixes. The deluxe is available to pre-order now on iTunes, or physically on limited white vinyl with metallic packaging (bonus tracks only).

Lucius perform “Go Home”, “It Doesn’t Matter Anymore” for The Wild Honey Pie

September 30th 2014

On The Boat is an interactive original series produced by The Wild Honey Pie, filmed this year at Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island. Each episode features a different band recordingfrom within the festival grounds: either on a boat, on the dock, or inside the walls of Fort Adams. Lucius were placed within the atmospheric environment of the latter, and offered up renditions of “Go Home” and Buddy Holly’s “It Doesn’t Matter Anymore”. Absolutely beautiful, sonically and visually.

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.
