Women and Work

mnemosyne

One of the great pleasures of listening to each Lucero album is the genre irreverent layering of instruments and an evolving sound that captures a group of musicians becoming more and more themselves. On their website, Lucero describes Women and Work as a love song to Memphis. However, Lucero’s Memphis–much like Joyce’s Dublin– is a metaphorical place we all have access to no matter our location. It’s a place where the fairy tale veneer has all rubbed off. Where lovers are friends, and you’re always taking a chance. It’s a place where desire doesn’t demand perfection and the heroine of the story is “…a superhero down on her luck [who] drinks like a sailor at the bottom of the sea, but she sings like a siren in the belly of the beast.” It’s a place where we don’t have to hide the worn out and failed pieces of our hearts.
