Is indie-rock singer-songwriter Walker Lukens ready to break out of his Austin bubble? Lukens' 2013 album Devoted was well received locally. Now, he's back with a new EP produced and recorded by Spoon drummer Jim Eno. (Lukens and Eno connected in a typically Austin manner: by striking up a conversation in a bar.)
The four songs on Never Understood are wonderfully inventive and convey Lukens' refreshing attitude. Hear two of them in this week's World Cafe Next segment.
