NEW MUSIC: Lord Huron

Last night I had the great pleasure of catching Los Angeles-via-Michigan group Lord Huron’s return to NYC. Celebrating the release of their debut LP, Lonesome Dreams, the band performed their stunning new material infront of dimly lit silhouette of a mountainscape and proved why they’re one of the best emerging indie-folk acts on the scene today. Lord Huron’s new album is a dream-like journey, recalling contemporaries like the Fleet Foxes, while harkening back to the days of yore with tales of growing up on the lake, river crossings, undying loves and stories of the American heartland. It’s an album for autumn. Listen to album tracks “Ends of the Earth” and “Time to Run” below and then head over to IAMSOUND to purchase the record.

One thought on “NEW MUSIC: Lord Huron

  1. Benji Schneider’s Lord Huron project released a couple of tropical-influenced starry-eyed indie-rock EPs back in 2010 but went pretty silent since. Hopefully, he’s either a slow worker or he’s spent his time crafting some serious tunes in the vein of ‘Time To Run’, a galavanting country-tinged stomp about moving “way out west”. It appears on the Lord Huron debut album Lonesome Dreams out on IAMSOUND Records in October.
