The A’s – “Lonesome L.A. Cowboy”
I missed out on the album earlier this year from The A’s, but thanks to New Commute, caught this nice follow-up single from the band this week. The pair Amelia Meath (Sylvan Esso, Mountain Man) and Alexandra Sauser-Monnig (Daughter of Swords, Mountain Man) tuck into a cover of New Riders’ “Lonesome L.A. Cowboy,” calming the song’s hangover hurt with a gorgeous folk treatment. The song has been a favorite of late, with Mapache releasing an namesake EP with the tune and Billy Strings known to cover it from time to time, but the duo divorce the song from the kind of road-weary origins that others evoke. Instead the song becomes a fresh air fresh start that feels like starting over more than languishing in the sins of the past. Along with the single, the band’s recently released album, Fruit, is out now on Psychic Hotline.
