The Lonesome Band
Reviewed by Jim Caligiuri, Fri., June 19, 2015
Like many alt.country acts to emerge in the past decade, TLB gets sideways carrying a tune. There's a youthful spirit carrying the locals' brand of roots rock to firm entrenchment. Unfortunately, bandleader Sam Whips Allison barely makes it through the lament "Halfway There" or speedy "Make 'Em Dance" without causing a wince or three.
