Mom + Pop’s Boombox: Vol. 1

Lucius

NYC’s Lucius will release their debut full-length album in North America with NYC tastemaker label Mom+Pop. Today, the label unveiled Mom+Pop’s Boombox: Vol 1, a compilation featuring tracks from its roster of acts including Lucius’ “Until We Get There demo” which earned great deal of praise after recently airing on FOX’s New Girl.With emotionally charged, upbeat, 60s inspired songs and a sincere crowd connection, the quintet has solidified its reputation as a must-see live band. Their summer tour includes stops at several festivals including Bonnaroo, Solid Sound Festival, Boston Calling + support dates with Tegan and Sara, The Head and the Heart and more.

Earlier this spring, the label launched Boombox, a monthly subscription service via Drip.fm, offering both digital downloads and deliveries of limited-edition 7”s. The 13-track sampler features Mom+Pop mainstays such as Andrew Bird and Polica as well as Hunters, Flume and the also recently signed Jagwar Ma.
