Lydia Loveless: SXSW accolades, Rhapsody video

It seems hometown girl Lydia Loveless turned even more heads this year at SXSW. SPIN named her one of its “Best of SXSW,” saying she’s “one of the most badass country or Americana or rootsy-fartsy songwriters working today. Her Red Eyed Fly set at the Bloodshot Records showcase was a revelation…. Loveless may not even be a household murmur right now, but she’ll get hers soon enough, and the old alt-country guard better look out.” Greg Kot at the Chicago Tribune was similarly complimentary, and the LA Times called her Saturday night set a “high-energy, don’t-mess-with-me take from a rising young should-be-star with an outlaw bent…. ["More Like Them"] is equally relentless and stubborn, indicative of an artist who isn’t interested in hearing your advice. With songs like these, she doesn’t need it.”

Sounds like the Donewaiting fave did all right for herself. Check out the above video of Loveless and Ben Lamb doing an acoustic version of “Back on the Bottle” at SXSW for the Rhapsody “Stripped Down by the River” series.
