Lydia Loveless is brash, crude, smart-mouthed, self-assured, confident, talented -- everything I'd like to be, even though I think I have a decade on the cowpunk singer/songwriter to have gotten there. "Boy Crazy" is an anthem to everything that every woman thinks about her crushes, especially the inappropriate ones; it's an anthem to bad ideas and badder actions, and it's furious, bass-heavy, and unapologetic.
"Boy Crazy", the title track from her new EP -- out now on Bloodshot Records, previewing her future second LP -- is a bad idea in and of itself, a catchy chorus and no I'm-sorries for the bad things we ladies do on the dance floor and in bars.
I think it's gonna be my anthem for 2014, if you don't mind. Anybody going to join me?
