Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets to Drop Second E.P.


Since the late seventies, Nick Lowe has been a force in music that’s hard to deny. When Lowe released an E.P. with Los Straitjackets last year, it was obvious that this was a choice that made sense as soon as everyone heard the magic within. Now Lowe & Los Straitjackets are back with a second E.P. and the first track from it “Love Starvation” hits on all the spots you’d expect it to.

“Love Starvation” feels like it was recorded in an era much kinder than the one we live in today, complete with Hagstrom bathed licks and sixties influence. The surf psych touches on the song almost create a rockabilly vibe that’s so engaging that you almost want to get up and twist the night away to it. Lowe is in his prime here, giving fans his signature voice while Los Straitjackets play the soundtrack to his upbeat words.

You can stream “Love Starvation” on all streaming sites, you can purchase it in all digital shops, or you can pre-order Love Starvation/Trombone directly from Yep Roc Records before it gets released on May 17.Nick Lowe and Los Straitjackets will be on tour beginning April 03 in Atlanta, GA at The Variety Playhouse until June 20 at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, U.K. A complete listing of their tour dates can be found here
