We are pleased to announce that punky Americana siren Lydia Loveless is returning November 5th with the new EP Boy Crazy via Bloodshot Records. Get an early taste as we premiere the title track today.

Back in 2011, PopMatters’ Matt James raved about Lydia Loveless’ aptly titled sophomore outing, Indestructible Machine, noting that “Lydia Loveless’ second record is, by turns, a succession of swift punches to the face followed by a lover’s warm, passionate embrace. Either way, it holds your attention. Indestructible Machine is as good as anything I’ve heard this year and marks the true, and truly defiant, arrival of what could be a serious talent.”
