Music: The Lonely Wild

Whoever came up with the notion to sepia-fy the cover of The Sun As It Comes deserves a drink. The image on the front of The Lonely Wild’s first full-length is a photo collage of skulls, rocks and mountainous scenery — a pretty good concept with humdrum execution — but the pictures’ varying shades of sepia do the thematic heavy lifting much better. Before you even catch a note from the Los Angeles five-piece, that cover’s color scheme suggests that pensiveness and nostalgia will probably be on the menu. 

Sure enough, The Sun’s audio makes good on that unspoken oath.

This truly promising 3-year-old band produces Tarantino-soundtrack-worthy Alt Country/Indie Folk in the shadows of giants like Ennio Morricone, Calexico and Outlaw Country sorts like Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash.
