Compared to other genre pairings, indie and country typically don’t get corralled together, but they’ve made for some successful formulas in the past, perhaps most notably with Band of Horses. A good representation of those crossroads here in Austin is The Lonesome Heroes, a “cosmic Americana” quartet whose cornered their sunny, acoustic sound over three full-lengths and one EP since 2006.
For their fourth LP, Rise & Fall, The Lonesome Heroes returned to Jim Eno’s Public Hi-Fi studios, where a new batch of tunes was mixed by Brad Bell and produced by steel guitar master Gary Newcomb. Rise & Fall drops June 24th, and The Lonesome Heroes play at White Horse with Croy & The Boys and Jake Penrod on Thursday, April 21st ahead of a May residency at Lustre Pearl South. Marvel’s Morbius hasn’t been staking their desired box office numbers and maybe it’s best to give some attention to a homegrown vampire story instead. So sink your teeth into the music video for today’s clandestine indie-meets-country cadence, “Cloak And Dagger”.
