Lukas Nelson and the Promise Of The Real

Recommended Posts

Chanced upon them on the ever brilliant Radcliffe and Maconie 6Music show on the BBC.

Bought their album Turn Off The News, Build A Garden.  It's brilliant.

Any other appreciators?

Great band, that’s a very good album. Saw them recently backing Neil Young, they were excellent. Lukas is almost as cool as his father.

Aye. Sounds very much like him on a couple of tracks, too. Loving this album and have to be careful not to overdo it.

First time I heard of him. Checked out some songs on Youtube and really like it. Set Me Down On A Cloud is sublime! Thanks for making me aware of him.

Bought this based on your recommendation Paul. First listen (snippets) gave me enough that I want to listen again, but the Hold Steady album really hit me.

Nice one Mark. HS not a band I've listened much to.  Will take another look.

PS, are you up in Cardiff for Steven's show?

Had the album for a month now but never got to listen to it. Doing it a song a day now. And Breath Of My Baby must be one of the most beautiful lyrics I have heard in a long, long time.

One of the best covers I've heard in a while. And this is not an easy song to cover I'm sure.

I rarely get to see my parents.. I’m sure there are some in this world who see their parents less, but nonetheless I miss them terribly when I’m away .. I’m happy I got to spend time with them these past couple weeks! We don’t have a perfect family, but the fundamentals are based on love and kindness. Nelson family rule is, “don’t be an asshole!”, and we all try our best :) Every time I see this picture I am humbled by how lucky I am to be a part of our family, and that includes all my sisters and brothers and aunts and uncles and cousins.. I’ve always valued my alone time, but I’m truly grateful for time spent with people who aren’t afraid to let me know when I’m breaking the Nelson family rule , as one does from time to time. Mom and dad are in Vegas now for a string of shows, go see him ! ... and I’m off to Florida to join up with POTR for the Zac Brown Band dates we have left .. happy daze !
