Stream Pick: Lukas Nelson

By: Laurie Gallardo

Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real’s Naked Garden marks the spinoff point following last year’s LP Turn Off the News. Eerie how the title of last year’s LP reflects the vibe of current times. But is this year’s release a sequel? Not quite. Nelson explains that it’s a more raw, spontaneous track collection borne from the previous album’s recording sessions, including several song ideas that didn’t make the cut before. (Your Austin Music Minute host’s fave “Back When I Cared” is featured on today’s AMM.)

Since all touring plans have come to a halt, Nelson is sharing the new music on the Quaratunes Evening Sessions. Join him for a live stream solo performance Wednesday evenings, 8 p.m. Central, on the Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real YouTube channel.
