Mixing old time traditional american music along with contemporary indie influences, austin lucas' new album "the common cold" combines the best from multipal generations of american roots music.
Following in what is quite possibly the most important of traditions in all forms of roots music, austin's family is heard throughout this recording. His father Bob Lucas lends the banjo and fiddle throughout the album and his sister Chloe manor' voice is heard on the haunting irish murder ballad "Cruel Brothers".
With driven picking and beautiful vocal harmonies, this album should be a breath of fresh air for fans of depression era country as well as those of lo-fi acoustic indie music.
