Richmond Fontaine combines elements of punk, country and folk music into a compelling backdrop for the heart-wrenching tales of lead singer Willy Vlautin, whose lyrics are often compared to the short stories of Raymond Carver. Wistful pedal steel, melodic bass, jazz-inflected drumming and ringing electric guitar surround the bleak characters that occupy the songs, ready to break out of the prison that everyday life has brought them. Richmond Fontaine underwent an extensive CD release tour of the Mid and Western U.S. to rave critical review. This album, Lost Son, produced by Luther Russell, shows the band at its peak, moving from plaintive folk songs to punk rock flare ups to sing along choruses in the blink of an eye. Like a great novel, Lost Son draws you in, makes you think, and forever changes your perspective on the supposed everyday.
