I saw Lucy Rose playing at SXSW. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy her performance and was prepared to move on to a new venue. But I found I really enjoyed her performance. So I thought I’d pick up her album and catch her Rough Trade in-store. Tonight, playing mainly from her poppier new album, I had more mixed feelings about her. Some of her material sounded great. But tracks didn’t work for me. I still enjoyed the gig. But I felt her first album was stronger.
