It's great when you're friends are just that and by far my favorite new local discovery is Lucius, the catchy indie-wop folk-pop group out of Ditmas Park. I first saw them open for Ivan and Alyosha and Hey Rosetta! at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn and everyone including the bands they supported couldn't stop talking about them. This past Saturday they played their last show of the year with their buddies Chappo at the Mercury Lounge. Again, a great performance and response. In honor of the My Morning Jacket show this past week at MSG, Lucius performed a lovely rendition of "wonderful (the way i feel)". Video included below.
