Cloak And Dagger

The Lonesome Heroes: “Cloak And Dagger”

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”.
