Big Bad Luv (Vinyl)
Not yet reviewed.
'Big Bad Luv' – the new album from John Moreland – is an honest, bruising experience. A record about love, faith and the human condition, it's the first full-length released to worldwide anticipation, and his debut for 4AD / Remote Control Records.
Moving from Kentucky to Tulsa when he was ten years old, John fronted hardcore and punk bands throughout high school years before feeling the pull of the lyricism he heard in folk and country music; "I was 19 in 2004, and Steve Earle had put out 'The Revolution Starts Now,' and I remember hearing the song "Rich Man's War" and totally feeling like somebody just punched me in the chest."
Moreland has been chasing the 'chest punch' ever since, composing pointedly and prodigiously, releasing largely self-produced albums every other year since 2011.
His fourth album, 'Big Bad Luv,' was recorded in Little Rock, AK, and mostly with a crew of Tulsa friends and mixed by Grammy winning Tchad Blake, who has worked with iconic acts from Black Keys, Al Green to Tom Waits.
