Roots music quintet The Lonely Heartstring Band are releasing Smoke & Ashes, their second album for Rounder Records.

Produced by Bridget Kearney of Lake Street Dive, the eleven-song set takes the musical experimentation for which the group has become known even further and announces the arrival of a band which isn’t just genre-bending–they’re creating a wholly new sound. Poetic depth, 60s pop, blues-inspired grooves, and more tease out exciting textures from the band’s bedrock bluegrass foundation.

As fiddle player and harmony singer Patrick M’Gonigle observed, “We can’t help but be a cumulative experience of our musical tastes. We love pop music — all of us. And the Beatles, of course. That’s our common ground.”

Smoke & Ashes puts that ideal blend of common ground and diverse directions on ferocious display. In the end, M’Gonigle and his bandmates hope Smoke & Ashes meets listeners where they are.

“I find my favorite records are the ones I can put on if I’m feeling super blue and down, and they make me feel better; but then, I can also put them on when I’m feeling on top of the world–the same record is for both of those moments. To me, that is what music does. It brings you what you need. Whatever people need this record to do for them, I hope it does.”
- Patrick M’Gonigle (Singer)

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
