Rootsy rock band Lucero hails from Memphis, the capital of the Southern soul music that defined record labels like Stax and Hi Records. It's a sound that can't help but seep into the band's solid new album Women & Work, and it makes Lucero perhaps best suited to take on one of David Bowie's most soulful hits. With the song's energy, horns, and piano, "Modern Love" could almost pass for a cover of an old soul song, but no, it's a David Bowie original from 1983's Let's Dance. Lucero makes the song its own, especially when Rick Steff gets going on the keys.
