You don’t meet folk like Lydia Loveless everyday. “Rare as Hen’s teeth” I believe is the expression. If you believe in Rock ‘N’ Roll, you pray for people like Lydia Loveless. A walking hurricane. The match and the Molotov. The brain and the brawn. The kit ‘n’ kaboodle. The real deal ….
If you're someone who seeks out the place where punk rock, country music, crafted songwriting, and raw, immediate, visceral garagey rock & roll meet, look no further than Indestructible Machine, the Bloodshot debut of Lydia Loveless. The 21-year-old Ohioan is the product of a rock & roll drummer daddy (who plays in her band), a Loretta Lynn-worshiping momma, and a boyfriend who hipped her to country music's outlaws and the latter-day XXX-brand country of Hank III, Shooter Jennings, etc. Indestructible Machine reflects all this, but Loveless is more than the sum of her influences: her writing and singing talents are in their own class.
