Awesome review of LONESOME SHACK “Desert Dreams” via MUSIC TAP

I know it’s early but mark my words: come curtains on December, Lonesome Shack’s Desert Dreams – the London-by-way-of-Seattle trio’s latest full-length player, out March 1 via Alive Naturalsound Records – will still be creeping under the skin of critics’ lists as a contender for one of the best records of 2019.

The LP, an absolutely hypnotizing blend of Junior Kimbrough-style deep-blues, urban folk and Fahey-esque slow expansion, is just that goddamn good. From the start of opener “On The One,” guitar-slinger/frontman Ben Todd’s simply got you by the throat: he picks out mesmerizingly simple but devastatingly engaging little lines on amplified guitar while half-crooning lines like, “When you have love/nothing can hurt you,” suggesting, perhaps, that truth is not the only storyline you should be believing. – MUSIC TAP HERE
