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

 

Wow we are movie stars! 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 @ Ginny's Little Longhorn, then the characters come to the Hole in the Wall to watch our band play. It's really awesome! The Film is showing at the Austin Film Festival this weekend. 9:30 PM Thu, Oct 22 Rollins Theater 5:15 PM Sat, Oct 24 Alamo Drafthouse Lake Creek

SONG ON AUSTIN SOUND'S SXSW COMPILATION CD

 

 

STARRY EYES VOL. III SXSW COMPILATION

"The outer limits of country continues to contort in any number of directions, courtesy the rolling raucousness of the Golden Boys, cosmic touch of the Lonesome Heroes, and haunting folk of Dana Falconberry, while rock got a fierce shot in the arm from UME, Harlem, and the Midgetmen.

Rich Russell and Landry McMeans meld their harmonies and guitar and dobro into delectable tunes that captures the Lonesome Heroes' restless and wandering spirit. With a backing band that includes an impressive cast of Austin players, the duo delivers gentle ballads cut with a psychedelic country swirl, McMeans' gorgeous vocals traded with Russell's down-to-earth sound. Following 2006 EP Don't Play to Lose, the group released their appropriately-titled sophomore effort, Crooked Highway, this past year, and are planning a live album for some time in '09."

Austin Sound Sound Off

 

"Few young artists have done as much to promote the local music scene as the Lonesome Heroes. 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 Russell’s 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."
