Many bands claim Gram Parsons and Big Star as influences, but few compare to such time-tested landmarks. The reconfigured Lonesome Heroes fill the bill by drawing as much from Seventies pop ("Sunshine Come") as they do from a potpourri of country rock ("Throwing Dirt Into the Wind"). The ear-pleasing results make for one of Austin's best discs of 2015. Full of sun-streaked melodies ("Love Is Contagious") and inventive arrangements ("Whole Heart"), we'd expect nothing less from an LP produced by Li'l Cap'n Travis' Gary Newcomb.
