Americana’s the Lone Bellow have taken the loser concept a step further than most artists. Their latest album offers almost a dozen Love Songs For Losers.
The writing on the Lone Bellow's Half Moon Light strives towards the essence of a thing – emotional conflict and tension, inward or interpersonal – and resolution.
Shovels & Rope's By Blood is a record that smacks you in the face as a first impression, but then, still demands time to give up its secrets and grow on you. Give it the time.
