The Lonelyhearts record for one of the best labels in the country, but don’t just take my word on it, they were voted that by readers of The San Francisco Bay Guardian. Three Ring Records and the band are prepping their full length debut but in the meantime they have released a four song ep called The Four Wheel Drive EP. Three of the songs from the EP will also be on the debut full length.
As you can see from the photo above The Lonelyhearts are a duo. For just two guys they produce a full, rich full sound. These are two of the songs that should be on the forthcoming full length. “New Virginia” has a bit of the historical rock that the Decemberists have popularized in the last few years but musically the band has more of a western/dustbowl sound than the Victorian feel of some of that band’s best work.
