Breaking news: Lucero's new album, Women & Work, features Southern barroom rock songs about women, ghosts, and drinking. There's slide guitar, there are horns. There's a high-energy love song about a woman with a kiss like lightning and a weepy, self-deprecating tune about the one who got away. Hunky singer Ben Nichols says the words "baby," "darlin'," "honey," and "drink" over and over again. Women & Work is everything that every Lucero record has been before. But goddamn if I don't fall for it each time. Sure, the Memphis band keeps writing the same few songs repeatedly, but what's the crime in that when they do it so well? MEGAN SELING
