Lydia Loveless Interview

Photo by David T. Kindler/Some Girls Style
Lydia Loveless is about to release her fourth album, "Real", out August 19 on Bloodshot Records.
Her previous album, "Somewhere Else", was my favorite release of 2014 and "Real" is an early contender to hold the same title for this year.
At the same time, Loveless is the subject of a new documentary, "Who Is Lydia Loveless?", directed by Gorman Bechard.
I had a great time talking with Lydia as we discussed our mutual love of Kesha and glossy pop, lazy descriptions and raw lyrics, the album, the documentary, and more.
