The Long Winter
Back in 2015, Mick Southerland wrote us about Lucha and their first release, an EP titled The Long Winter.
Forgive the long wait, but it is worth it.
While experimental music may not be everyone’s cup of tea, Lucha brews it perfectly. First, a little about the project, from the email:
“Lucha is a two piece band that uses unusual instrumentation and found noise to create lavish soundscapes that are often packed into tiny two minute songs. Lucha (Spanish for “fight”) was originally formed in Austin, TX in 2014.”
The Long Winter is a worthy collection of 7 tracks. This genre of music is not one where the artist creates songs instead, it is a masterful creation of soundscapes. Lucha serves it up wonderfully, an eclectic blend of traditional and non-traditional sounds and noises to create an amusement park of an audio experience.
The Long Winter has the following tracks:
- The Long Winter
- Black Beatles
The credits are as follows:
“All songs written and arranged by Mick Southerland.
Mick Southerland played bass, keyboards, guitar, percussion, drums and other instruments.
Brian Scherer played organ on Black Beatles Michael Vecchione played percussion and drums on Thunderbuss and The Long Winter”
