The Lonely Heart Show - Hope in shadows Sounding like a countrified, moodier conglomeration of REM, The National, and Daniel Lanois, this album is just brimming with atmosphere and foreboding. Twangy guitars meet cinematic strings and verbed-out drums on LonersΓΓé¼Γäó Lullabye while the next track, Little Tin Box, could be an alternate-universe version of a Portishead song. And thatΓΓé¼Γäós a good thing. Lonely Heart Show is a musical collective fronted by Cris Fehr - the founder of defunct alt-pop group Dual, who continues to write for alter-ego electronica project LeisureCo. As their bio puts it, the band is comprised of ΓΓé¼┼ômusicians drift in and out like the ballads that speak of longings not yet satisfied, and of those whom are easily forgotten and down on their luck.ΓΓé¼┬¥ Acoustic guitars, female harmonies, subtle drum loops, and brooding grand piano tones mingle seamlessly with electric guitars, which are sonically equivalent to shooting stars - listen close for their brief brilliance.This is very cool stuff, perfect for an evening of driving in the rain, or setting the mood for a David Lynch film festival.
