Now streaming: The first song off of Lucero's forthcoming album, "1372 Overton Park." It's called "The Devil and Maggie Chascarillo," which comic book geeks (ahem) the world round will recognize as a reference to one of Jaimie Hernandez's central characters in "Love and Rockets."

Here's the slant rhymed chorus:

Love and Rockets won't you please
Maggie and the devil, California streets
Now Maggie the mechanic, punk rock girl, lonely saint
Who ever thought it was gonna turn out this way?

Blame those Springsteen horns on Memphis (and possibly Craig Finn), Lucero Nation. I like 'em, but the alt-country crowd's never been too open to change.

"1372 Overton Park" is out Oct. 6 via Universal/Republic Records.
