Nick Lowe Love Starvation/Trombone (EP)
Release Date: May 17, 2019
Label: Yep Roc
As he approaches his 70th birthday, it's incredible that Nick Lowe hasn't lost a step in his unrivaled songwriting and rockin' abilities. Love Starvation/Trombone features the razor-sharp lyricism that Nick's made so famous and is complemented by the returning dulcet tones of Los Straitjackets. "Love Starvation," "Trombone" and the tender "Blue On Blue" are among Lowe's strongest compositions across his half-a-century-spanning career. Lowe breathes new life into a cover of Rick Nelson's "Raincoat In The River," which may be mistaken for an original given the unique cadence and arrangement Nick and Los Straitjackets put on the classic tune.
