No one ever said country music had to be simple, and when Austin Lucas began thinking about the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2013 album Stay Reckless he had a lot on his mind. The Indiana troubadour wanted to do something not only different from his own work, but unlike anything else being done in the realm of country music and Americana. Between The Moon And The Midwest marries traditional & cosmic country sounds with sharp, vivid storytelling in a fully realized album concept.

Citing influences like Buck Owens and George Jones, Lucas had wanted to record a fully country album since 2011’s A New Home In The Old World. Enlisting the help of Joey Kneiser - guitarist and vocalist of the Tennessee band Glossary- they crafted a sound that, while rooted in outlaw and hard country, was infused with 60s psychedelic pop like the Zombies and the Beach Boys circa Pet Sounds. The result is a finely produced sound layered with guitar, vocal harmonies and atmospheric harmonics. Between The Moon And The Midwest is unique in its mix of sounds, songwriting, and influences.

From the country-gold sound of “Unbroken Hearts”, the infectious “Ain’t We Free”, to the plaintive truths in “Wrong Side of the Dream” and “The Flame”, he delivers an album at once timeless and modern. Boosted by guest appearances from John Moreland, Lydia Loveless, and Cory Branan, Between The Moon And The Midwest finds Lucas at the top of his game and taking his music into exciting new territory.

  1. Austin's Best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2016

    Love Austin Lucas, and this is his best work yet.

  2. timeless stories about love and loss with midwestern/southern crossover feel. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jun 2016

    This is probably my favorite album so far in 2016, Austin put out a winner, yet again. The narrative surrounding Kristie Rae coupled with the same angst-ridden yearning for a bygone era, sonically, sets a stage for a heart wrenching yet down to earth album full of highs and lows. In the opening tracks we see the best aspects of a punk ethos, and throughout the entire album we see that optimism and naivety wash away through failed relationships and the likes, with momentary reprieve in one of the last songs "don't call the doctor". Worth buying 10/10
