Lonesome Heroes in Austin Film Festival Release: "Straight to the Bone."

 
Wow we are movie star! Landry and I make a cameo appearance in Erik Mauk's new film "Straight to the Bone." Here's the story: Jay and Shannon have been together since college. Now, both approaching 30, Shannon makes an understandable request for the ultimate commitment. Unfortunately, Jay does not see the need for such a legal definition of their relationship. Frustrated, Shannon seeks comfort in the arms of Blake - a new friend who seems to share her ideals about the future. Does she gamble on this new opportunity or stick it out with the one she loves - who may not be able to give her all she needs? Mauck weaves the always complicated story of relationships set against the backdrop of Austin, creating a film that also reads as a love song for the city in which it takes place. We explain the logistics of Chicken Shit Bingo @...

STARRY EYES VOL III Follow this link for a free compilation of local music: http://www.austinsound.net/2009/03/11/sound-advice-vol-iii-starry-eyes/ Rich Russell and Landry McMeans meld their harmonies and guitar and dobro into delectable tunes that captures the Lonesome Heroes’ restless and wandering spirit.

Austin Sound Sound Off

 
Check out this weeks Austin Sound Sound off about us.... http://www.austinsound.net/2009/02/23/sound-off-the-lonesome-heroes/ Sound Off: The Lonesome Heroes» Few young artists have done as much to promote the local music scene as the Lonesome Hereos, who started up the Wednesday alt. country nights at the Hole in the Wall. Like the lineups that founders Rich Russell and Landry McMeans booked, the Heroes’ music has an eclectic roots range. There are touches of cosmic country and Sweetheart of the Rodeo in their psychedelic tinged, restless country tunes, but the real draw of the Heroes is excellent melding of Russell and McMeans in spirit and sound. McMeans dulcet twang and expansive dobro, and Russells’ more grounded drawl and guitar combine for a mesmerizing and beautiful exchange, while their songs evoke the open west Texas expanse of road and possibilities. With their latest album, Crooked Highway, they have assembled a stellar band of local luminaries, and you can...
