[DARK COUNTRY] Portland’s Lonesome Billies may take a cue from the likes of Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, but I’m pretty sure neither of those two ever entered a jingle contest sponsored for a shot at $10,000. The Hazel Dell, Wash.-bred outfit is in the middle of recording its full-length debut, a welcome addition to its discography which already includes five-track EP Useless Bay. “Fuck all my friends, I guess it’s the end,” throatily sings lead vocalist Billy McCune on “Rats at Your Feet,” one the EP’s standout cuts, amid a soft backdrop of acoustic guitar and light cymbals. The rest of the album delivers similarly dark, twanged-out country tunes that are far from uplifting but fit for drinking.
