Loose Wing - Loose Wing
The lyrical content reflects a keen inner eye and sufficient detachment to tell the story in a relatable fashion. For us, highlights are "Heather Army", "Learn Your Lines" (Claire's take on learning to play the role to make it in a male dominated industry, we think), "Moving Blankets", and "Wear Me Out". But there are no weak songs, and while we think the band gels best on the more up-tempo songs, they always deliver. Then again, Claire could probably sing the dumpling menu at Dough Zone and we'd ask for an encore.
Next weekend we will announce our favorite five or six albums for the first quarter of 2019. Expect to see Loose Wing on the list.
In addition to Claire Tucker (guitar/vocals/keys), Loose Wing are Jack Peters (bass), Rusty Willoughby (drums), and Bill Patton (guitar/pedal steel). Loose Wing is out now in vinyl and digital formats; see the Bandcamp link below.
