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. While her previous album was described as “hillbilly punk with a honky-tonk heart" (Uncut), this one can't be so quickly shoehorned into neat categorical cubbyholes. No, things are different this time around—Loveless and her band have collectively dismissed the genre blinders and sonic boundaries that come from playing it from a safe, familiar place.
'Somewhere Else' earned glowing accolades from NPR (Tiny Desk Concert and First Listen), Rolling Stone, SPIN, Pitchfork, Stereogum, Grantland/ESPN, and more, and was named a New Artist You Need to Know in 2014 by both Rolling Stone and SPIN. Lydia played Stagecoach Festival this spring and will tour with Iron & Wine and Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses this summer.
