Dusty Wright (from the album Lonelyville available as a self-release) (by Bryant Liggett)
The latest from Dusty Wright is borderline mellow and wonderfully weird. Lonelyville is a bit Psychedelic Rock and a bit Gothic Folk, a record that will ultimately get filed under the catch all of Americana but it has got much more going on than something you’d file as simply a Roots category. Lonelyville has got some jangle throwback, some paisley underground, and a great big dollop of the odd.
The title track opener kicks off with a 1980’s pulse, followed by hints of jangle in “Unbearable Brightness”. “When Our Hearts Sing” is the most straight-ahead Folk cut of Lonelyville, although it plays out like a trippy love tune. “One Last Time” is a gothic lullaby and haunting murder ballad, “Riptide of Love”, has a decades old Athens, GA via Ohio Indie Rock vibe. “Stare into the Sun” has great, lead guitar work in a playful bouncer. “Saddest Story Never Told” is down-played beat poetry, “Making New Friends” is subtle ambience with Dusty Wright singing of playing god, and while Wright took us into “Lonelyville” at the beginning of the song cycle, he exits on “Leaving Lonelyville” as the album closer. Dusty Wright’s monotone vocal delivery is easy to get your mellow groove on, the sparse instrumentation just enough to support said delivery. Lonelyville basks in the glory of its unique melodies and song structures, an album simultaneouly simple and complicated.
