you think about The Lonesomes, there's the feeling of the old West, not just in
the band's name but in their sound and feel — something that put you in mind of
tan chinos, boots with spurs and shots of rye at the local saloon. Their most
recent full-length CD, “There’s No Denying Josephine,” contains shining
elements of The Byrds (jangly 12-string guitars and a trumpet solo a la
"So You Want To Re A Rock & Roll Star"), Tom Petty, Neil Young
(the guitar solos), and the Allman Brothers (nice mix of Hammond and dual
guitars) sprinkled tastefully throughout. It has the necessary
punk-slash-honky-tonk charm to qualify as an alt-country gem. Since then,
they’ve added more twang with B-bender guitar and steel but never stray far
from their classic rock roots. With a new video and two new songs set for
pre-summer release, 2018 promises to be a busy one for one of Portland’s
strongest Americana outfits.
