Petal Contributes Cover Of Tom Petty's You Got Lucky To Kevin Devine's Split Series

Thursday, 06 September 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Petal has covered Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' You Got Lucky.

Kiley Lotz has stripped back the '80s single and given it an introspective makeover for the latest edition of Kevin Devine's singles series, 'Devinyl Split Series Vol. 2', which is due on September 28.

Devine's half of the 7" will feature his take on the title track from Petty's 1991 LP 'Into The Great Wide Open'. He said of working with Lotz:

“I love Kiley, and her music; she understands that owning your vulnerability is actually the purest form of strength, and the freedom there is threaded through her songwriting and performance. Her cover exemplifies that awareness—there’s something almost confrontational about the directness with which it’s delivered.”

Other contributors to the series include Craig Finn, Worriers and David Bazan.

Lotz, meanwhile, is touring behind her latest LP, 'Magic Gone', which is out now through Run For Cover. Her plans include headline shows in the UK and Ireland next spring following a support run with Shakey Graves.

Photo: Natalie Bisignano Few bands have enjoyed a career as varied and colourful as Hopesfall's. Forming 20 years ago in North Carolina, they emerged just as metalcore and other forms of moody hard rock were beginning to take off. However, they aren't remembered for their contributions to the scene as much as how they subverted its tropes. Drawing from screamo and psychedelic space rock in equal measures, their releases 'No Wings to Speak Of' and 'The Satellite Years' to this day stand up as classics of the genre.

Fri 10 Aug 2018
Photo: Paola Baltazar​ Much like prog before it, math-rock hasn't always appeared the most accessible of genres. As a form, it's designed to keep listeners on their toes, directing and misdirecting with syncopated rhythms, jagged melodic progressions and non-standard time signatures. That might not seem like a recipe for commercial success, but if there's one thing Brits can get behind it's art that's awkward, intelligent and self aware.

From Blues Boy To Next Big Thing: The Making of Dan Owen
Thu 23 Aug 2018
It’s easy to question the authenticity of any young musician who stirs up a super-sized buzz. Are they merely a record company’s latest marionette? Yet another superficial media darling destined for 15 minutes of fame? Dan Owen certainly generated significant plaudits before his debut album, ‘Stay Awake With Me’, had even been released, but the finished product revealed a special singer-songwriter who, after years of grafting for his shot at the big time, is being lauded for all the right reasons.

Crackling through a speakerphone, Joe Talbot’s voice is calm and level. “I don’t feel any pressure to do anything,” he says. “It’s up to me. I genuinely don’t care what anyone else makes of what I do. It’s up to me to be as honest to myself, and truthful to the band and our art, as possible. The rest is up to you.”

Photo: Don VanCleave It may sound like wishful thinking, but in an ideal world music would begin and end with nothing but a great song. There’d be no record companies or publications trying to shape our tastes. Image would be unimportant. Sales irrelevant. Radio airplay redundant. The only thing that would matter would be the creativity of the musician and how they reflect themselves through their art.
