Silverlake, Los Angeles-based quintet The Lonely Wild aim to conjure the mythic Old West, decorating their supple, beautifully textured indie folk-rock with flourishes straight out of Ennio Morricone's classic film scores for 1960s and '70s Westerns like The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. The band formed three years ago and released their debut full-length The Sun As It Comes just last month.

Gallavanting across the U.S. in support of the album, the intrepid rockers brought their eclectic and cinematic sonic stew to The Current studios. They stopped by before their show at the 7th St. Entry to play a few songs and chat with host Bill DeVille about their ties to Minnesota, their extensive touring schedule, and the relationship between their music and classic spaghetti Western films (and their soundtracks).

Songs played: "The Sun As It Comes," "Everything You Need" and "Buried In The Murder."
