The New York Times: New Music by Lil Silva, Rico Love, Austin Lucas, and D’Banj

Austin Lucas has a slippery voice and a cracked heart. “Stay Reckless” (New West), his new album, is teeming with palpable anger and sadness, and sometimes he doesn’t sound as if he can bear it. But this isn’t a reluctant album; it’s made of muscular and well-toned roots-country, the thickness of which is where Mr. Lucas’s background in punk and hardcore bands peek through.
