Nick Lowe and Los Straitjackets Break Their Fast

One of the unlikeliest yet just right matchups in recent musical history continues on May 17 when Nick Lowe and Los Straitjackets release their second collaborative EP, Love Starvation, via Yep Roc Records. This new offering features three new Lowe originals and a cover of Sammy Turner’s 1961 Phil Spector-produced single “Raincoat in the River,” later covered by Ricky Nelson.

Not only that, but Los Straitjackets are releasing their own four-song EP on June 21, and it looks to be an especially fun one. Channel Surfing features their takes on assorted television themes, from The Andy Griffith Show to Sex & the City and Game of Thrones. Yep Roc is again doing the honors.

Meanwhile, Nick and Los Straitjackets’ spring tour kicks off at the Variety Playhouse on Wednesday, April 3. Trust us, you do not want to miss that one.
