Review by Douglas Heselgrave

Nothing wasted, everything gained on The Promise of the Real’s second full length album

No one will ever accuse Lukas Nelson of taking the easy way out or following the path of least resistance. Anyone who’s taken the time to follow his musical development over the last four or five years knows that Lukas can pretty much do whatever he wants musically. He’s a natural singer with an innate sense of phrasing that many artists spend a life time developing; his sense of melody is so natural and ‘bang on’ in a commercial sense that he could spend the rest of his days penning radio hits if he wanted to, and his guitar playing has moved out of imitation – though it’s still easy to hear and feel his influences in every note – and into territory that is becoming all his own. With talent like Nelson has, it’s both surprising and gratifying that he has chosen to make a record like ‘Wasted.’ If he was a different kind of person and hadn’t grown up in an environment that encouraged him to trust his instincts, he could easily have given into the pressure to create an album of radio friendly hits, full of hooks and memorable choruses that would earn him a place at the very forefront of the contemporary country scene.

4. Based on just the one song I heard on the site so far

I'm stopping and buying that album on the way home.

Never even knew this guy existed. And he's Willie's kid.


Thanks for bringing this to my attention, BB!

7. Wow! He sounds like his Daddy on some notes

and a young Bob Dylan on some. That is indeed delicious. Thanks for the tip! Takes my "Oh hell, I MUST buy this" quotient up to four this month.

9. Yeah them are da ones.

 

Alabama Shakes Debut Album Boys and Girls Out April 9th/ 10th on Rough Trade and ATO Records. This will be IT. NEver since Bruce Springsteen have I seen a band go from nothing to something like the AS have this year. Not really a press thing either but the internet world of mouth thing is really driving their popularity right now. And all without a real record. And the kudos are deserved. Not like the media built them into stars, (like some bands named Arcade Fire, the Black keys) without really doing anything musically noteworthy live.

Bonnie's, from what I've heard of it is pretty tremendous. Lots of NOLA sounds and that's a great thing.

I'll be curious about the Dr John. Huge not a fan of the Black Keys really and I would hate for them to bring the thing I don't like about them to the Good Dr....

And Lukas, well get out to see hi this time around cuz after this he should be an arena band from now until never never land.
