“With a crisp wall of guitars and gently sanded harmonies […] The band’s love of Guided by Voices telegraphs in the pop bounce, but heavy touches of Sloan and Redd Kross come crashing through…” Raven Sings The Blues
Having admired each other’s musical endeavours from across the Cleveland, OH cosmos, it was inevitable that Rosavelt’s Christopher Allen and scene stalwart Tim Parnin (Sweet Apple, Sons of Elvis, Cobra Verde) would one day embark on a transformative journey to write and record music together as Falling Stars.
Debuting in 2017, their inaugural album Stranded in the Future and follow-up EP, Let It All Go, in 2019, scored them rave reviews and support slots with artists such as Drive-By Truckers, The Lemonheads, The Smithereens, and The Dream Syndicate.
This October will see the official release of Lonely No More, their latest album on the legendary underground NY label, Tee Pee Records. Providing an electrifying take on the ragged Midwest power-pop of The Replacements and unapologetic roots-rock of Mick Taylor, Mike Campbell, and J Mascis, it’s an astounding record. A fuzzed-out, razor sharp assemblage of what Gang of Four once described as “that essence rare”. Occasionally easy going and freewheeling’, typically swaggering; tenacious and never anything less than true, Lonely No More showcases the duo at their absolute finest.
“The songs we end up recording are generally the ones that stick in our heads the most,” explains Allen. “We’ll have little demos on our phones, and then we’ll bring them to the band. But if it sounds good while we’re playing it, we’ll record it. And we took the best of the best and put them together for an album.”
Produced by John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Kurt Vile) the band headed to The Magic Barn in Solon, Iowa for three days. A deliberate choice that placed them in a space containing high-end and near-mythical gear from the famed (and now defunct) New York City studio, The Magic Shop – a place where David Bowie and Lou Reed had once recorded.
A successful sonic collaboration between everyone involved, what ultimately makes Lonely No More so persuasive is its chemistry. Elemental rock ‘n’ roll awaits you at every turn from their impeccable new single ‘Lonely Planets’ to their faultless cover of Tom Petty’s ‘Walls’, putting Falling Stars firmly in the ascension.
