For the lower east side's The Ludlow Thieves, life is a continuing anthem, filled with moments larger than they may seem, only your lens needs shifting. Projecting an exuberance that harkens back to hair metal's declarations of passion and love, The Ludlow Thieves do it all with mandolins and acoustic energy instead. Songs like 'Sing Me Back' (streaming) might very well harken a new national anthem with all their love for their hometown New York and all the circles of friends they're surrounded by. Check the band out when they play Arlene's Grocery on Jan 16. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
