When asked to articulate qualities that define The Last Hombres, the band has no shortage of reference points. They offer collectively visible analogies that include, "The tightness of the Stax house band; the looseness of a second line; a chapter of a Flannery O'Connor novel; the pull of a Saturday night; the gravity of church on Sunday morning." The songs are deeply literate and driving roots rock that express aspects of the American experience from a multitude of angles - Americana with muscle. It is as if they are on a road trip from Broadway to Bourbon Street, becoming more enlightened with every mile passed in their collective journey. Guitarist Paul Schmitz shares, "The Last Hombres has always been about the journey, the trip, the sights we see along the way, the people we meet. The fun part. I don't think we would recognize a destination even if we stumbled on it." [+]
