Something Real

Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real

Something Real

You realize the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree the moment Lukas Nelson—Willie Nelson's son—opens his mouth. References to his father pop up repeatedly over the course of this powerful, moody, introspective album of what the singer/guitarist terms "cowboy hippie surf rock." A heady San Francisco vibe pervades Nelson's moody introspection, with passionate promises—such as to be "a better man," in "Surprise"—sealed with snarling guitar solos. Neil Young's guest appearance in flower-powered "San Francisco" seals the psych rock deal.
