Share your work–v. 1: Lucius

Thanks for checking out my blog. I really dig Austin Kleon’s Show Your Work, so I’ll offer here a ongoing series of my prose and edits in the coming weeks. A found-object spirit informs this page, as I find prose on the web and, well, imagine it could be otherwise.

Here’s some good news, kids! Lucius’s forthcoming album NUDES drops on 2 March. Woo-hoo! I can hardly wait to hear their interpretation Gerry Rafferty’s “Right Down the Line.” The only advance single I can find is this lovingly understated version of their track “Until We Get There.”

Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, or vice versa, of Lucius.

At, here’s the band’s statement about NUDES:


Here’s my hot take on this bit:

We love performing live. Whether we’re onstage at a single microphone, in the center of the crowd, or in tiny, unexpected rooms around the world, we have over the years stripped things bare to create intimate bonds with you, our fans. These connections provided the inspiration for NUDES, our forthcoming album. In two beautiful days at New York’s legendary Electric Lady Studios, we recorded a collection of acoustic songs: some are old, some are new, and some are covers we’ve always wanted to do. NUDES pays homage to our inspirations … and heralds the inspiration still to come.

What do you think?

I, too, love Lucius, and recommend you check them out if you’re in one of the lucky cities listed here.  I saw them back in March 2016, and the band was absolutely amazing.
