Check out this incredible note from our Friend, Arne Fogel!
I just got done listening to the entire Thelonesomekid album, front to back, for the second time tonight. I agree 100% with what Mr. Dill has said. I like all of Gretchen's albums, mind you, but this one is a sonic masterpiece. I try sometimes to understand my own brain and what it is about certain artists or certain performances of wildly divergent types of music that can, nevertheless, similarly give me such eye-opening pleasure. I think I figured it out: I love artists who can succeed at what they set out to be, musically, remain unique unto themselves while doing it, and yet remain totally, unaffectedly, natural. This is something that great artists do. This is something Gretchen does. Gretchen's writing has never been more colorful, or thought-provoking. One moment you are totally relating to the sense-memory she pulls up from inside of you; the next moment she's painting a word-picture of something you've never heard, seen, or dreamt. Her voice has never been more resonant. The band comes up with the perfect sound and the perfect vibe to fulfill the mission. Splendid work, you (lonesome) kids.
