The Lonelyhearts - Disaster Footage At Night (2008)

A great collection of radiant and melodic southern rock and folky Americana. The San Francisco/Iowa based duo get it done with acoustic and electric guitars, keyboard, a bit of synth, and honest, Tom Petty-like vocals (at times) and story-telling lyrics. A really solid, mellow album, with my personal favorites being: "New Virginia," "Harlequin Bands," & "Concrete and Chrome."

If you happen to be a "value in numbers" person, let it be known that the few words that I used to describe this album do not reflect my massive love for these tunes.

Fantastic stuff. Listen... you'll see.
