Micky & The Motorcars will release their new album, Hearts From Above, this Thursday, July 31st. The album, their first since 2011's Raise My Glass, was funded by the band's successful Kickstarter campaign and was recorded earlier this year at Austin’s 12th Street Sound.
A solid listen from start to finish, Hearts From Above, contains twelve songs, including the title track (and current single) as well as the touching "From Where the Sun Now Stands," about the Nez Perce Indians, and a cover of Alejandro Escovedo's sentimental "Sister Lost Soul." Of course, there are songs of love and heartbreak too, like the rockin' "Hurt Again," which will grab you with Micky's delivery of the opening line "The taxi’s running waiting right outside/There’s a look of shame girl that you can’t hide," and standout "You Led Me the Wrong Way" on which Gary takes lead vocals.
Get your hands on a copy...or two.
MMC will have three album release parties in Texas, then head off to Challis, Idaho for the Braun Brothers Reunion Festival followed by the Livers of Steel Tour with Reckless Kelly and Cody Canada and the Departed.
