    REVIEWS
    ________________________________________

    There’s a lot in their music, as ‘Past the Ditch‘ demonstrates – a pinch of folk – guitarist Ben Todd wisely spent time transposing old banjo tunes to his finger picking style – a sprinkle of country blues and a swirl of Canned Heat boogie. – AMERICANA UK
    ________________________________________
    They’re raw, extremely expressive, and a bit odd. – AMERICAN BLUES SCENE

    ________________________________________
    Showcases Ben Todd’s finger picking guitar, with eerie blues vocals and a sound that seems to carry his love of North Mississippi blues as much as it does the West African guitar style of acts like Tinariwen. – GLIDE MAGAZINE
    ________________________________________
    In the combination of song selection, in the clarity of this recording, and in the lyrics that seem to deal with heartbreak and loss, not deals with the devil, with the deep morass of a depression you learn to live with more than the blues that get put upon you—the reason this album is singularly great is that it is pure expression. That you can also kind of shake your ass to. – AMERICAN STANDARD TIME
    ________________________________________
    Nothing soothes the soul like boogie music. – THE WASHINGTON POST
    ________________________________________
    This, boys and girls, is a lesson in doing so much with so little … something Lonesome Shack are undisputed masters of. – JAMBANDS
    ________________________________________
    They have devoted themselves to the study of true roots, and their music reflects that reverence for authenticity. – SEATTLE WEEKLY
    ________________________________________
    Todd's droning blues figures display the influence of guitarists like Junior Kimbrough and John Lee Hooker, players whose playing could be described as raw, but display a powerful elegance. – PHOENIX NEW TIMES
    ________________________________________
    While they round out the sound with light bass and a bare-bones rhythm, each song falls into a hypnotic trance of restless guitar vamps. – JESTER JAY
    ________________________________________
    Poetically devoted to that fading Americana sound. – ARKANSAS TIMES
    ________________________________________
    A great album that casts a long shadow. Superbly envisioned and painstakingly realized, it’s an intense work of focus and dedication. – RUST MAGAZINE
    ________________________________________
    Easily one of the best albums of the year. – SECRETLY IMPORTANT
    ________________________________________
    With finger-picked guitar and personal reflections on life, friends, and simplicity, the title refers to both the soul of the album as well as the creative process, which began in Todd’s remote shack in New Mexico. – RECORD DPT
    ________________________________________
    For those who love the blues, this could well be the album of the year. – SUNDAY EXPRESS (UK)
    ________________________________________
    Sound like a great swamp blues band from the Southern regions of the US. – POPMATTERS
    ________________________________________
    This is a simple record, but in a deceptive way. On first spin, the minimal instrumentation and similarity in tone, tempo and volume among the songs made for a homogenous listen. Several spins later, I’d say it takes a deeper level of attention to really recognize/appreciate the unique elements of each song. – VINYL UNDER REVIEW
    ________________________________________
    You'd swear that Lonesome Shack hail from the deepest Mississippi Delta. – SPIN
    ________________________________________
    Raw, primal boogie and country blues. – BLURT

     

    * WE ARE OFTEN ASKED ...  " WHY OH WHY DO YOU BASTARDS NOT HAVE A DOWNLOAD COUPON???"  It's a sad stories kids, we can track the usage and it turns out that we're paying $20 per download, only about 20 are used per 500 coupons!  We'd rather give you the cds for a nice lo price and give the money to our hardworking bands.
