Mike Behrends – Lonesome for Handsome

  • November 5, 2012

Young Minneapolis singer-songwriter Mike Behrends follows-up his debut full-length New Feet with Lonesome for Handsome, a nine track set of folk rock songs. Performing alongside Behrends and also playing production roles are Lance Owens and Mike Grunder, whose instrumentation round out the songs with fuller sounds. Standouts include “Pontchartrain”, “Friend Ship” with its cinematic swaths of strings, and “South Koree” a song of love and heartbreak from which the album was titled. Check out this charming Americana-infused album at Behrends’ Bandcamp site. – Written by SMarx
