The Big Lonesome
The Big Lonesome is an indie rock band from Boston, MA. Formed in 2009 after songwriter Chad Gosselin released a collection of home recordings, he recruited his
brother Luke Gosselin (guitar/lap steel/vocals) and friend Joe Ziemba (bassist) to play coffee shops, living rooms, and dilapitating rock clubs around the northeast. In 2012, they were joined by drummer Andy Korajczyk. The band quickly developed their sound into a four piece tapestry of shoegazed indie rock with a sensibility for pop. 2016 saw the departure of Ziemba and the addition of Sam Okon. Their music has been described as sounding like “The Rolling Stones covering Sonic Youth” and has drawn comparisons to Guided by Voices and early Wilco.

In 2014, the Lonesome released its first formal EP Undone along with producer Sean McLaughlin (Matchbox 20/Elliott Smith), and mastering engineer Jeff Lipton (Wilco/Spoon/Bon Iver). The band toured the northeast and east coast the following summer in support of the record, garnering national radio attention along the way.

The Big Lonesome are currently working on their sophomore effort which is set for an early 2017 release date.

Future Lives (players from King of Prussia, Drive-By Truckers, Japancakes and more.)

“The pedigree of the members who play on the latest Future Lives LP should grab your attention; you’ve got players from King of Prussia, Drive by Truckers, Japancakes and more. They’ve quietly announced their debut album, Mansions, which comes out on June 27th via Soft Magic Records, so perhaps we should visit their music. There’s almost a folk indiepop vibe going on, interwoven with pedal steel and strings; it’s the best sort of orchestrated pop music, offering up lighthearted joy for us all. This is just the sort of gem you expect from a band hailing from Athens.” — Austin Town Hall
