Daydream Western

by The Lonesome Heroes

The Album, Daydream Western, is a rich blend of acoustic guitar, steel, multi-layered textures and vocals that sweep you right up into a daydream, the soundscape that occurs when indie rock and country artfully cross paths. -Laurie Gallardo KUT 90.5 ATX

Album Notes
Proclaimed as "rewriting the rules of alt country" by the Austin Chronicle, The Lonesome Heroes have emerged as a singular talent out of Austin's music scene. Songwriters Rich Russell and Landry McMeans founded the Heroes in 2005, and the pair has cultivated their Brooklyn and Texan roots into a unique sound that unites Indie Rock, Folk, and Country.

The Heroes' songs evoke a Western Americana landscape littered with broken hearts, abandoned shopping malls, and crooked highways. Lonesome, yet hopeful, the songs call upon a wide list of influences to step beyond the alt country moniker. McMeans' lilting voice, meshed with Russell's drier vocals sits atop a multilayered nest of acoustic guitar, reverb-laden steel, and atmospheric sounds. The result is a haunting city-meets-country feeling that has been compared by Flagstaff Weekly as a "chance meeting between Yo La Tengo and Patsy Cline.

"Austin psychedelic country-roots duo The Lonesome Heroes released an album this year called Daydream Western. Quite frankly, the title couldn’t be more fitting. This is exactly what a daydream would sound like, the perfect soundtrack to accompany you on that long stretch of highway that has no defined destination, when you’re alone with your mind and lost in your thoughts. The album is a rich blend of acoustic guitar, steel, multi-layered textures and vocals from songwriters Rich Russell and Landry McMeans that sweep you right up into that daydream. This is the the soundscape that occurs when indie rock and country artfully cross paths. "
