Uncle Lucius, Brian Keane

Uncle Lucius

For some inexplicable reason, Uncle Lucius tends to get lumped into the yee-haw "Texas Music" crowd, when their thoughtful, square-jawed rock and roll is much closer to Austin neighbor Bob Schneider than anything boasting either a cowboy hat or a steel guitar. Indeed, the quartet's latest, And You Are Me, is one of the better Texas albums to come out this year. From the Stax-kissed soul of "Pocket Full of Misery" to the Beatlesque "Willing Wasted Time" and Black Crowes-y jams "Somewhere Else" and "Just Keep Walking," it makes a solid case that mainstream rock has neither died off altogether nor succumbed to one too many body piercings. Opener Brian Keane, formerly of Austin's Band of Heathens, co-wrote Hayes Carll's 2008 regional favorite "She Left Me for Jesus."
