Casey here with my DJ pick of the week from the incomparable Nick Lowe. “Love Starvation” is our first preview of his collaborative EP with Los Straitjackets Love Starvation/Trombone, out May 17 via Yep Roc Records.
Lowe says of the track, “It has a kind of Ritchie Valens feel to it that I thought might suit Los Straitjackets. It’s funny, that song could’ve been a Rockpile song. But in a way, I don’t think I was good enough to write a song like that back then. It sounds like old stuff, but I’m just better at doing it now.”
Listen below and let us know what you think!
