First Charity Shop Purchase of 2020
My local charity shop is currently doing 3 CDs for a pound. However on my first visit of the year I only saw one that interested me which resulted in the price rising to 50p.
I knew absolutely nothing about Lucette or the 2019 album Delexue Hotel Room on the Thirty Tigers label
However the blurb on the back sleeve was enough to make me take a punt
Firstly it is produced by Sturgill Simpson
Lucette, who's name is actually Lauren Gillis, the blurb states is an Indie-Pop artist from Edmonton,AB Canada- her sophomore album Deluxe Hotel Room is a step away from the Americana sound of her previous record Black is the Color, produced by Dave Cobb, with more R&B,pop and soul influences
That was enough for me to pounce.
A terrific find as it is very good indeed. Don't be put of by the term R&B , this review by Americana Highways sums it up pretty accurately.
I'm off to track down Black is the Color
