Beat & Path‘s label boss Uone and Western, offer an indie disco single “Last Showdown” to tease their LP, in which psy-bass leaders, Desert Dwellers, gets called to transform. For the last 12 months these neon outlaws tamed an iron asteroid, mining deep for the elements that form their debut LP ‘The Lone Wranglers’.
It has a big game, a fusion of galactic electronic music rolled in the steampunk spirit of the American frontier. With only a few weeks until the ten track epic goes supernova, Uone & Western starts the countdown via three singles taken from the LP, starting where it ends with ‘Last Showdown’
The ‘Last Showdown’ is thick with vocal smoke, harmonica whisps and swashes of slide guitar, it’s a blueprint on how to become the hero in your own story. It was sourced after many space battles and exactly 100 hours of dimension surfing. It feels fluid and fearless, and in multiverse number KH-1078Q1 considered a cure for the future blues. Listen only if you are an experienced Level 10.
The Desert Dwellers is wanted by every border patrol from Melbourne to Mars. Their brand of anti-gravity melodies, confidant guitars and rattlesnake shakers are worth a lot on the black market. But the rumors are true, and this is beyond mere alien oil. It contains a healing potential which is very real. Be careful: this deeply illegal remix will feature on every Most Wanted list across the seven quadrants.
The latest transmission is the title track it’s all named after, ‘Lone Wrangler’. That is a bold statement. Of course, it spells trouble, and the Council has sent an urgent Mind-Link to the Zealand Gun Slinger battalion for assistance. What they did next shocked everyone: They activated Out of Sorts.
Featuring Tonto, the Lone Ranger’s mythical right-hand man, ‘Lone Wrangler’ is an astute prophecy for modern times. For Uone and Western, he embodies a clear message: choosing compassion and forgiveness over vengeance. Or as they say on Earth, right over wrong.
The feeling is contemplative and the rhythm is radio-sensitive. They have managed to capture the American myth and imbue it all over this broadcast. It points towards the pending release of a majestic manifesto. Be warned: It’s only meant for those who can handle the truth.
Riding high on their legendary tales of gun slinging in the Silver Fern canyons, who could’ve predicted the involvement of Out of Sorts? But here we are. Their Gunslinger remix of ‘Lone Wrangler’ is intense. They imprint an authoritative gel all over the root material, a minor acid adhesive that will suck any heretic straight into its force field. It’s a deadly and fierce workout that accentuates why the Powers are taking Uone and Western’s debut very seriously.
