Pinche Güero Review #1 Lonely Horse My Desert Son EP

It’s uncommon, to say the least, that a band manages to craft an album that is equal parts poignant and powerful, ruminant and rockin’. San Anto duo (yeah, there’s only two of them) Lonely Horse have succeeded in doing just that on their debut EP My Desert Son. The five scorching tracks that comprise this album far from your typical fire for fire’s sake burn with pain, anger, and existential questions. The wild and wiry vocals of singer-songwriter-guitarist Nick Long ride atop the furious music, bringing their directly stated vulnerability to bear as you try to resist the urge to gyrate and throw shit. My Desert Son penned by Long in the midst of an intense personal crisis is never wasteful and seems to be exactly everything it needs to be, no more or less. Though each track stands strong on its own like some imposing megalith of old, this album is best when experienced and considered as a perfect whole. It’s the statement of a band that would crack open the sky if it could, but is content cracking open your head. With heart, skill, self-awareness, and energy to spare, Lonely Horse is entirely unique among local acts. It’s a hot and plodding journey through the desert, but these guys are showing us how to make your own oasis on the other side.

-Go get the album from the Lonely Horse Bandcamp: http://lonelyhorse1.bandcamp.com/

-Also, the guys have gotten pretty far in the Hard Rock Rising Band Competition and are now representing Saytown as they compete against 94 other bands from around the world. If they win they will get a bunch of great gear, an album and a video done via Hard Rock Records, and a small world tour. So let’s rally behind them folks — they certainly deserve it!

where does great music come from?
Pain and anguish perhaps. Depression, drugs, alcohol, love, hate, God, wisdom…
maybe its just waking up broken every morning. feeling that same feeling you felt the night before. They’re doing just fine while i suffer. why cant i be happy like you? why dont you care that your killing me? why doesnt anything matter to you anymore? constant questions we all ask ourselves from time to time.
a good friend once told me
“You know, we can only control our reactions to situations, not peoples actions. That includes our feelings towards our situations. Sometimes we just need to creep inside of ourselves and grab our minds, our souls”.
lets do the best we can. with anything we do. succeed or fail. lets be good.

This Wednesday evening, we’re celebrating one big year of total brilliance, lots of Rit dye and innumerable fake emeralds at Rookie’s school dance-themed first year anniversary party for Fashion Week at Ace Hotel New York, hosted by Editor in Chief of the World, Tavi Gevinson. There’ll be readings from Rookie Yearbook One, gluten-free cupcakes from Babycakes, Dry Soda, a full bar from The Breslin, DJs and Confetti System frilleries all about. Wear your gnarliest letterman jacket, greased pompadour, shiniest gold tooth and sweetest snarl. RSVP here, and we’ll see you on the dance floor.

Just a reminder about our party tonight, and another reminder that RSVP-ing doesn’t guarantee admission; they can only let you in if/when it isn’t filled to capacity. But if you live nearby please try to come!

You are terrifying and strange and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.
