THE LONESOME HEROES

"Steel" is Today's Top Tune at KCRW

 

"Cosmic Austin-based band The Lonesome Heroes' album Can't Stand Still creeps under the skin, right into your bloodstream. Western Americana fans will delight in Today's Top Tune, "Steel."

"One of Austin's best discs of 2015"

 

"Many bands claim Gram Parsons and Big Star as influences, but few compare to such time-tested landmarks. The reconfigured Lonesome Heroes fill the bill by drawing as much from Seventies pop ("Sunshine Come") as they do from a potpourri of country rock ("Throwing Dirt Into the Wind"). The ear-pleasing results make for one of Austin's best discs of 2015. Full of sun-streaked melodies ("Love Is Contagious") and inventive arrangements ("Whole Heart"), we'd expect nothing less from an LP produced by Li'l Cap'n Travis' Gary Newcomb."

Dashville Skyline Festival & Australian Tour Announced for Fall 2015

 

After 100,000+ miles of American Highways we are thrilled to announce we will be driving on the wrong side of the road for a one month tour of Australia this fall.

3rd & 4th October 2015

Dashville Skyline was born out of fondness for the Golden era that began in the USA in the late 60s, early 70's. Dashville Skyline is a festival of Americana, psychedelia and alternative country music.

THE LONESOME HEROES - WESTERN STYLE SALOONS

"Psychedelic Country out of Austin, Texas as The Lonesome Heroes put a road song for our video premier of "Western Style Saloons". The Lonesome Heroes feel that '”Western Style Saloons” explores the sad reality that years of touring mostly amounts to worn out vans, band members, and a lot of forgotten good times, but it's worth it if you're doing what you love'."

Love Is Contagious

"Who: Check it. There’s a bounty of country-psych awesomeness from this Austin band that cites Graham Parsons, The Magnetic Fields and Walt Whitman as influences. The Lonesome Heroes release Can’t Stand Still revels in that groovy cosmic American indie-pop vibe, speckled with dusky shades of golden FM road trip sounds."

Song of the Day THE LONESOME HEROES: “LONG TIME COMING”

"Can’t Stand Still is the name of the Lonesome Heroes’ second album, but it’s also the state-of-mind for frontman Rich Russell. Russell formed the band with Landry McMeans in Austin seven years ago, and the duo traveled around the country in an old trailer that perfectly captured their old-fashioned aesthetic. McMeans and Russell parted ways in 2013, but Russell soon reformed the Lonesome Heroes as a full band. Recorded at Public Hi-Fi here in Austin, Can’t Stand Still is more sprawling and bittersweet than the golden sounds on the Heroes’ debut. “Long Time Coming” recounts the past few years with more than a hint of sadness, matched note-for-note by the band’s wistful country touches."
