Lucy Dacus was born, raised, and currently lives in Richmond, Virginia. Her first record, No Burden, was the result of a school assignment with her guitarist and longtime friend Jacob Blizard. After an original release by Virginia label Egghunt Records, the album was reissued on Matador Records following an onslaught of unexpected attention and critical acclaim. Her highly anticipated second album, Historian, came out in March 2018 and focuses on themes such as loss, death, hope, resilience, and gratefulness. Dacus is on the road with a four-piece band to support Historian in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Europe throughout the upcoming year.
Rough Trade-signed Parquet Courts' fifth album Wide Awake! - produced by Danger Mouse - is a ground-breaking work, an album about independence and individuality but also about collectivity and communitarianism. The songs, written by Andrew Savage and Austin Brown but elevated to even greater heights by the dynamic rhythmic propulsion of Max Savage (drums) and Sean Yeaton (bass), are filled with their traditional punk rock passion, as well as a lyrical tenderness. The record reflects a burgeoning confidence in the band's exploration of new ideas in a hi-fi context. In celebration of Wide Awake! the band return to the UK in November 2018 for their biggest ever headline shows yet.
