going back to lucy

I went out  on Friday night to see my friend Jeremy play some songs at the Nachbar.  There was a band from Bloomington, Indiana called Kentucky Nightmare who played before Jeremy’s set.  I am not sure why they are called Kentucky Nightmare, but it seemed pretty appropriate as we Kentuckians have been going through a nightmare in the aftermath of Icepocalypse 2009.

Anyway, I really liked the band.  I thought they had a great pop sensibility while also writing really creative and thoughtful vocal and instrumental lines.  I bought a copy of their album, “Take Her Favor” and particularly enjoyed a track called “Going Back to Lucy.”  When the band played the track live, the lead singer, Simon explained that the song was about his home state, Louisiana.

Going Back to Lucy


Here are a couple of pictures from New Orleans, Louisiana that you can look at while you listen to the song.  I took them last year:
