Biography

"Love this woman. Love her. Is "Stevie Nicks singing lead on 'Born to Run'" overstating it? Probably, but too bad." --SPIN

“If you believe in Rock ‘N’ Roll, you pray for people like Lydia Loveless.”--PopMatters.com

"Her defiant tone is matched by songs that put country and punk on equal ground, unvarnished and direct." ... Read more in Amazon's Lydia Loveless Store

Product Description

Two years after the critical success of her breakout second album, Indestructible Machine, Lydia Loveless emerges from the trenches of hometown Columbus, OH with the gloves off and brimming with confidence on Somewhere Else. Writing from this new-found place of conviction, Lydia crafted 10 songs that are stark in their honesty, self-examination, and openness. Somewhere Else is more elemental than any of Loveless's previous material; it's about longing for the other, whether that's something emotional, physical, or mental, all anchored by her arresting voice that sounds beyond her years.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Angel Delta TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 17 Feb. 2014
Format: Audio CD
Last month I reviewed Lydia's Boy Crazy Ep which was released in advance of this new album. I described it as a heady mix of honky tonk and punk rock and said "if her new album contains just half a dozen songs as good as these five diamonds it will be a cracker.

Well, this is a powerful album in every sense and certainly fulfills the high expectations that I had for it. Lydia has a voice that oozes dramatic flair and is underpinned by drums, organ, bass and steel guitar. Loveless, and her co-producer Joe Vier, let the band flow with a rhythm and strength that drives the songs along but never threatens to overwhelm a voice that so often recalls Lucinda Williams and Neko Case.

This vision of the band complementing the voice is manifest in "Verlaine Shot Rimbaud", an evocation of a doomed love affair, with Lydia's haunted voice rising above duelling guitars.

Lydia has a way with hooks and confessional lyrics that belie her tender years. "Head" is an alt country song about a form of desire; "Chris Isaak" recalls being seventeen, "sitting in your basement playing 'Forever Blue'", "Wine Lips" is about dealing with heartache and pain and "Everything's Gone" is a touching lament for her childhood home.

The album closes with an inspired reading of Kirsty MacColl's wonderful "They Don't Know" delivering a certainty that Lydia Loveless is a rising star of her generation

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By M. Dowden HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 Feb. 2015
Format: Audio CD
Lydia Loveless for me is always a joy to listen to, and this album is in many ways much smoother than her last one. This singer and songwriter gives us some powerful imagery with her lyrics, which some may find a bit strong in places. I love the way that she can go from singing in a more vulnerable type voice, to something that is much more earthy and angry.

All the tracks here are well worth listening to and this is an album that is sure to grow on many as they listen to this time and again. Loveless doesn’t shy away from the yearnings that we all have, plus the anger and lust we also all show at times, making this quite an in your face sort of album. Plus the ups and downs that Lydia has faced in the year that she put this out (2014, last year), this is in some ways in places sort of semi-autobiographical.

If you haven’t heard of Lydia Loveless before now is perhaps the time to sit up and take note, as she not only sings well but writes some fantastic songs.

This is rip it up and spit it out Country, though more lyrically so than musically, the latter a healthy embrace of rock Country to graceful ballads. The spitting is in the candour of the lyrics that speak of lust and lewdness, though giving head isn’t necessarily lewd, obviously, but it probably is on some Sunday Country radio programmes. I can’t imagine Lydia gives a proverbial about that.

Let’s start with the vocal though. Loveless has a gorgeous voice, one that has effortless power and a wonderful natural warble. There are times where it sound like a refined version of Stevie Nicks, and that is offered as a full compliment. It is for me at the most potent and emotive in her lovely not-a-cover of the Little Antony & the Imperials song Hurt So Bad – but it sounds like it could be - where the same title’s repetition in the exquisite melody expresses the clarity of pain as simply as it can be. This is an amazingly good song, whatever the direct or indirect influence. There are other clear echoes of Nicks’ sound and style in the track Head [that doesn’t now need any explaining], Verlaine Shot Rimbaud where an allusion to one naughty relationship reflects on her own, and most notably in title track Somewhere Else that could have been written to a Rumours template, even down to the descending harmonies. Plagiarism? I can’t imagine Lydia gives a proverbial about that.

I only give five stars to truly great albums. But this is very close. Certainly favourite of 2015 so far. Some great songs, the band's on fire, and Loveless singing is wonderful. 'Really' and the Title track are great. Highly recommended.

My world has officially been rocked! 11 May 2014
By Gorman Bechard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was starting to think 2014 might be one of the worst years in music history for rock & roll. Even people I could usually count on were putting out mediocre albums. Thus far only Angel Olsen's "Burn You Fire For No Witness" had stayed on constant rotation, and was running away with the title of my favorite record of the year.

And then a friend said, "My favorite under the radar 2014 record is the new Lydia Loveless."

Wow! Wow! Wow! Where has Lydia Loveless been my whole life? The comparison that someone else made here to Whiskeytown is a perfect one, which means I'm really hearing a Replacements sound with a singer who falls somewhere between Neko and Lucinda. Which is about the most wondrous place any singer could fall.

Lydia writes the sort of songs I like, about drinking, broken hearts, sex, loneliness. She's not afraid to get nasty, or to growl and fall a little out of tune. It's spitfire punk alt county. And there isn't a weak tune to be found here. (I went out and immediately bought everything else, including her two RSD singles.)

My world has officially been rocked.

this is a girl who is climbing fast... 19 Feb. 2014

Articulate, poised, and aggressive, Lydia has an Appalachian lilt that really makes a solid set of songs rock. I haven't been this excited about a female singer/songwriter since Maria McKee and Lone Justice.

Why isn't there more buzz about this album? 27 Mar. 2014
By MDE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It really is remarkable, from start to finish, not a weak song in the lot. I don't think it's too much to call her an American Treasure.
If you're sick of bogus pop idols, and sub par trendy music shoved down your throat, give this a listen. It's the real deal. Favorite tracks-"Wine Lips"-("I've got a bad idea", love that line), "To Love Somebody", "Hurts So Bad", and especially the gut wrenching
"Everything's Gone"-it's a killer, right between the eyes. How do you write something so heartfelt when you're only 23?

I don't write many reviews, but wanted to support this amazing artist, good luck Lydia...

I don't usually write reviews... 22 Mar. 2014
By C. Cook - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
...but this album was excellent. Since downloading the album, I've acquired her other albums as well. I have been 100% pleased with her music. I'm not going to compare her to other artists, or try to identify the category in which her music "belongs." Amazon provides samples, so listen for yourself. I've been recommending all her albums to folks I know that enjoy a wide variety of musical genres. Lydia Loveless comes across in her songs as being genuine and often brutally (but enjoyably) honest. Every so often a group comes along that reminds you of why you love music, and Lydia and her band have done that for me.

Excellent from start to finish. The tunes are awesome and the playing is rumbling, raucous and tasteful. No one sings like Lydia.
