Lord Huron – Lonesome Dreams

Sonic masterpiece of the Olde West sung and played with heart, love and a cabin full of talent by Lord Huron. There is thick atmosphere and layers of goodness like the oatmeal raisin cookies my daughter and I just pulled out of the oven. Yum!

Lord Huron – Time to Run

Ever scroll around on an old-fashioned radio dial and hear two stations drift together? It’s like a distant, ghostly ancestor of the mashup, wherein one band’s rhythms might mix with another’s guitar solo to create something new, if ephemeral and hard to re-create. Lonesome Dreams, the first full-length album from the L.A. band Lord Huron, creates that effect at times, as the cavernous choruses of Fleet Foxes or My Morning Jacket collide with the polyrhythmic playfulness of, say, Givers.

The brainchild of singer-songwriter Ben Schneider, Lord Huron finds a way to triangulate the best of both sounds, with songs that feel wide-open and ambitious, but also giddy and unpredictable.

Michigan born and bred, but with an itching to travel the seas. Sonically rich, melodically sweet, and emotionally deep, Schneider presides over tunes that brings out the loneliness and distance of cross-culturalism.
