Show Review: Julia Lucille Celebrates Release of Chthonic

Last Friday, songwriter Julia Lucille celebrated the release of her excellent new album Chthonic at Mohawk, supported by a solid bill of openers, Jordan Moser and Lomelda. Navigating song structures and lyrics evocative of both the natural, external world and the introspective terrain of the subconscious, Lucille’s songs are textured and dreamy. On Friday, her voice acted as the center for the three-piece band that issued a haunting set of electric folk songs. Local label Keeled Scales deserves praise for continuing to establish themselves with one great album after the next, Julia Lucille’s new effort among them. You can grab a copy of the LP online here.

Earlier in the night, Jordan Moser opened with a set of somber songs played solo on guitar. Lomelda followed with a typically stellar set of rumbling pop songs.Guided by Hannah Read’s voluminous, distinct, and fearless vocal delivery, the band sounded as incredible as ever on Friday. Lomelda continues to be one of Ausitn music’s greatest treasures. Check out our photos from the evening below.
