Album Notes
Slow down the clocks and live in the moment. The lonely heart show is a collective where musicians drift in and out like the ballads that speak of longings not yet satisfied, and of those whom are easily forgotten and down on their luck.

Drawing from yesteryear & today, The LHS quietly aspires to the romanticism and understated music of film noire, road songs, and pays homage to Lynch, Cash, and Lanois.

Frontman of this collective is Cris Fehr - the founder of defunct alt-pop group Dual, though he continues to write for alter-ego electronica project LeisureCo.

Associated with the crew at Shameless Records Canada, Cris formerly played bass for indie folk group F&M. F&M composer/singer Rebecca Anderson was featured on LeisureCo's sophomore release "the pan am connection," contributing on the track "between nowhere & here." Cris also produced the debut album for Easy Life Club, composed & written by the founding member of Shameless Records, Glenroy. Glenroy is one fourth of the brooding Canadiana band, The Wheat Pool.

Cris attended Vancouver Film School for Sound Design for Visual Media. His music & sound design film have appeared in film, TV ads, and animation. For more information, visit or

A surprising, excellent find
To start with, I am a tough grader, so 4-stars is pretty damn good. I sampled the CD initially from the CDBaby recommendation e-mail & it struck an immediate chord. I, like many of you, have so much music now that I really want music to not only be good musically & lyrically, but I want it to fit moods. This perfectly fits periods of melancholy hope. They really do remind me of someone...on the tip of my tongue but I never quite find it. Best I can do at the moment is call them a bastard child of Luna and Explosions in the Sky. Very nice. I'll look for their next effort.

CD Baby Editor Peter

Editor's Pick!
Sounding like a countrified, moodier conglomeration of REM, The National, and Daniel Lanois, this album is just brimming with atmosphere and foreboding. Twangy guitars meet cinematic strings and verbed-out drums on Loners’ Lullabye while the next track, Little Tin Box, could be an alternate-universe version of a Portishead song. And that’s a good thing. Lonely Heart Show is a musical collective fronted by Cris Fehr - the founder of defunct alt-pop group Dual, who continues to write for alter-ego electronica project LeisureCo. As their bio puts it, the band is comprised of “musicians drift in and out like the ballads that speak of longings not yet satisfied, and of those whom are easily forgotten and down on their luck.” Acoustic guitars, female harmonies, subtle drum loops, and brooding grand piano tones mingle seamlessly with electric guitars, which are sonically equivalent to shooting stars - listen close for their brief brilliance.This is very cool stuff, perfect for an evening of driving in the rain, or setting the mood for a David Lynch film festival.
