Lucius - Wildewoman (The New Recordings)

Organized by JamFest

Wildewoman (The New Recordings) offers a richer take on Lucius' dazzling debut album. Guests include Marcus Mumford, Devon Gilfillian, and Brandi Carlile.

Wildewoman (The New Recordings) re-imagines and expands Lucius’ dazzling debut album with enhanced instrumentation and deeper renditions of these remarkable songs. This 13-track set features guest appearances from Marcus Mumford on “Go Home (The New Recording)” and Devon Gilfillian on “Tempest (The New Recording).” The CD and vinyl editions also include a previously unreleased fan favorite, “Housewarming (The New Recording),” featuring close friend and collaborator Brandi Carlile.

Formed by lead vocalists and songwriters Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, the acclaimed indie band Lucius is celebrated for its sinuous harmonies and uniquely original pop-noir musical artistry. With multi-instrumentalists Peter Lalish and Dan Molad completing the lineup, Lucius has released three albums and toured worldwide, cultivating a passionate following for their ingenious art-pop creations and electrifying live performances. The exceptional musicianship and songwriting talents of Wolfe and Laessig shine through in their collaborations with a diverse array of artists over their prolific 16-year career.

Lucius made their debut with Wildewoman in 2013, which included the enduring single “Two of Us on the Run” and received a wave of critical acclaim. Rolling Stone praised the album’s modern take on '60s girl group sounds as “fresh and thrilling.” Their second album, 2016's Good Grief, saw the Los Angeles-based group delving into their influences to create an album NPR called “rapturous,” further expanding their rapidly growing fan base. In 2022, Lucius released Second Nature, an '80s dance-inflected LP produced by Brandi Carlile and Dave Cobb. The album features “Next to Normal,” named one of NPR Music’s top songs of the year, and the sparkling disco track “Dance Around It,” with contributions from Carlile and Sheryl Crow.

Beyond Lucius, Wolfe and Laessig are among the most sought-after vocalists out there. They are members of Joni Mitchell’s esteemed “Joni Jam” crew and have lent their voices to songs by a myriad of artists, including the War on Drugs, John Legend, the Killers, Harry Styles, Black Pumas, Jeff Tweedy, and even Ozzy Osbourne.
