Meanwhile Lonnie Walker is at a contemporary take of southern country, story songs, electric fingerpicking. It's a weird mix, brought together by a shared geography.
Get it from Friends Records.
Future Islands and Lonnie Walker both grew up in North Carolina, mostly near the beach. Core members of each group have been life-long friends, have at times played in the same band, and also went off to college together. While one group churns out synth pop that will make your heart twist and your feet bounce, the other supplies country punk fit for any type of DIY hoedown.
