BOY CRAZY & SINGLE(S)
this collection includes her summery 5-song EP, plus six non-album singles & B-sides including a mix of originals & inventive, bare-bones covers of Prince, Elvis Costello & Kesha.
These songs see Lydia & her band roping in their twangy pedalsteel-laden rock beat-em-ups & tying them tightly with the crisp Southern air of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers' Damn the Torpedoes & the snarling-but-sweet delivery of Juliana Hatfield's heyday. The recordings span from 2012 to 2015; many of which are on CD & LP for the first time. Boy Crazy is Lydia Loveless' "rock & roll tribute to baseball pants & youth." Featuring sun-washed rebel-powered pop songs presenting a conversation about judgment & loss of innocence as one transitions from good old American naivete to you-should-know-better "wisdom." loveless is for fans of Jason isbell, drive-by truckers & nikki lane.
