MUSIC: Lucero

Another favorite of this here site is Lucero. Looks like they're doing a reissue of the early album titled "The Attic Tapes", you can pre-order a copy from the band's website. Alternative Press named The Attic Tapes, the band’s 4-track debut EP, one of the “top 5 home recordings of all time.” Now that says alot. Here are the first three tracks from the original release (the reissue has some bonus tracks!).

::: Lucero - Into Your Eyes
::: Lucero - Diamond State Heartbreak
::: Lucero - Hello Sadness

And just for good measure, here's one of my favorite tracks off their self-titled release which you can pick up here (along with the rest of their excellent albums).

::: Lucero - Little Silver Heart

And, if you get a chance to ever check them out live, make it happen because they're incredible. Ben (the lead singer) really pours his heart out on stage.
