Striking Tune from Lonesome Leash

lonseomMy first spin through with the newest single from Lonesome Leash took me up and down, which is perhaps as Walt would want it to go.  His project has just released the One Foot in Front of the Other EP, and this song has to be one of the standouts.  It begins with a circus-like bit of accordion, moving into a troubadour stomp; it reminds me of a more sonically expansive Will Johnson effort, using a throaty vocal to pull in the listener.  Lucky for those of us in Austin, he’ll be popping up on Sunday, September 29th at the Owl.  If you’re not here, that’s okay, he’s still an artist that should be on your radar.
