After 100,000+ miles of American Highways we are thrilled to announce we will be driving on the wrong side of the road for a one month tour of Australia this fall.
Dashville Skyline was born out of fondness for the Golden era that began in the USA in the late 60s, early 70's. Dashville Skyline is a festival of Americana, psychedelia and alternative country music.
Austin Music Minute
LOVE IS CONTAGIOUS
Who: Check it. There’s a bounty of country-psych awesomeness from this Austin band that cites Graham Parsons, The Magnetic Fields and Walt Whitman as influences. The Lonesome Heroes release Can’t Stand Still revels in that groovy cosmic American indie-pop vibe, speckled with dusky shades of golden FM road trip sounds.
What: First, get a copy of that album already. Secondly, enjoy their sounds live at their May residency.
When and where: Wednesday nights at The White Horse, 500 Comal, starting tomorrow night. Sharing the bill with The Lonesome Heroes this week are The Casa Loma Playboys and Doug Strahan. The music kicks off at 8 p.m. Gonna be good times with great music. Recommended.

THE LONESOME HEROES: “LONG TIME COMING”

Can’t Stand Still is the name of the Lonesome Heroes’ second album, but it’s also the state-of-mind for frontman Rich Russell. Russell formed the band with Landry McMeans in Austin seven years ago, and the duo traveled around the country in an old trailer that perfectly captured their old-fashioned aesthetic. McMeans and Russell parted ways in 2013, but Russell soon reformed the Lonesome Heroes as a full band. Recorded at Public Hi-Fi here in Austin, Can’t Stand Still is more sprawling and bittersweet than the golden sounds on the Heroes’ debut. “Long Time Coming” recounts the past few years with more than a hint of sadness, matched note-for-note by the band’s wistful country touches.
