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.

‘Magic Gone’ begins abruptly with the Teenage Kicks-esque power chords of Better Than You, painting a picture of an album that’s going to be fuelled by anger, passion and enthusiasm, but the reality is far more measured.

Technical And Topical: Black Peaks' Guitarist Joe Gosney Discusses 'All That Divides'
Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
Cool With The Bargain Bin: Mike Pace Investigates The Pop Form On 'Smooth Sailing'
Thu 04 Oct 2018
A few weekends ago there was a sale at a record shop in the next town over. Their stock list had ballooned, taking over a small warehouse space on a suburban street. Pretty much everything had to go, and it was going cheap. The bargain bin has no respect for reputation, so nestled among the trashy cock rock LPs were rough diamonds and certified gems; ambitious works that shifted serious units and ambitious works that were chalked up to folly back when labels were paying for things like that.
Out Of The Shade: Doyle Bramhall II Steps Into The Limelight
Thu 11 Oct 2018
There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.
Boygenius: The Badass Supergroup We've All Been Waiting For
Wed 10 Oct 2018
Photo: Lera Pentelute Earlier this summer, three like-minded indie-rock musicians began teasing their fans. Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
