The Lovely Few’s new album The Perseids had the attention of Hearts & Plugs from the get go. The Hearts & Plugs family is tight knit, and you’ll notice members of each band contributing to each others projects. Dan McCurry of Run Dan Run offered noise samples to The Perseids, while Mike Mewborne of The Lovely Few lent vocals to Run Dan Run’s new album Normal. The bigger question for me is what took these two forces so long to come together?
The music of Mike Mewborne and the Hearts & Plugs label date back to 2007. Recently the label has found new life with the release of Run Dan Run’s new album and with the addition of The Lovely Few. And as those two grow, look for the Hearts & Plugs label to grow and thrive with the talented roster they have that also includes Ash Hopkins and Nick Jenkins.
This Friday night The Lovely Few will join Ben Walker in performing at The Midnight Rooster in beautiful historic Hartsville, SC. It is my favorite low key venue in the state. Great staff, great atmosphere, great town, great food combined with two bands that are deserving of your attention. All good reasons to be there.
