This Friday, the Brooklyn based band, Lucius, will be at The Hollow in Albany, NY. The last time we welcomed them to The Roundtable, they were hours away from a breakout performance at the Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA. Since then, they’ve released an album, a deluxe version of that album and toured the US and Europe - a lot.
The album, Wildewoman (released by Mom + Pop), appeared on a number of best of lists last year - (including Bob Boilen’s All Songs Considered Best Albums of 2013) and their song “Tempest” was on Rolling Stone’s Best Songs of 2013 list.
Lucius is Jess Wolfe, Holly Laessig, Dan Molad, Peter Lalish, and Andrew Burri. All of whom attended Berklee College of Music - though not all at the same time. With Jess and Holly on lead vocals in matching mod outfits - the curated look of the band gets a lot of attention - and they do look great - thankfully they sound awesome, too. Jess Wolfe joins us.
