Lonesome Shack
Desert Dreams
(Alive records)
Reviewed by BravoMarco

A wonderful slice of Americana with punchy simplicity. Formed in Seattle with a raw debut release in 2008, this is more polished, yet still packs full on energy & real charm. Desert blues from the US of A.

Like: Andrew Weathers, Bob Log III, Seasick Steve, JJ Cale, Ali Farka Toure
All twangtastic…Loving 2,6,7 & 8
No FCC’s

1) On The One (3.33) Mid paced charmer to open proceedings.
2) Past The Ditch (3.03) Head shaking foot tapping splendor.
3) New Dream (3.26) Slightly slowing it down in a boogie woogie style
4) Lonely (4.39) Drives along & takes you anywhere but being “Lonely”
5) Only One (2.58) Ballad time.
6) Too Bad (3.11) This sound just grabs you by the head & shakes you up & down.
7) King Clone (3.57) Blues & dirty grimy soul.
8) No Way Back (3.55) Grinding pulse & an incessant beat. Screaming out to be used in an advert.
9) The City Is A Desert (3.10) Keeps up the power & pace.
10) Desert Dreams (4.08) Crossover country to close.
