    A wonderful alt-country band with punk leanings from Memphis, TN. Ask five of their fans what their favorite Lucero record is and you'll get five different answers, but my personal favorite is 1372 Overton Park, where they really let the distinctly Memphis side of their sound go unchecked:

    However, their earlier material has a more rough-around-the-edges charm to it and is also definitely worth a listen:

    And finally, they put out a sadly mostly overlooked album last year that represented a bit of a change of direction but was nonetheless very good:

    One of my favorite bands but I don't listen to them as much as I used to. Enjoyed the new record quite a bit, though. I wasn't a huge fan of Women & Work so the new one was a nice rebound.

    The amount of love that I have for this band is insurmountable.

    Incredible live performers, too. I just love them.

    On first listen I think it's my favorite since 1372.

    High praise, but I have to agree. I don't think anything they do will ever top 1372 for me though.

    It’s far and away my favorite of theirs, so I would highly recommend it.
