Lord Huron's album "Lonesome Dreams" is my current summer jam.
The indie folk five piece hails from Los Angeles. Fronted by Michigan native Ben Schneider, the band began as a one man show. Over time Schneider grew the band's sound and head count by inviting other members who are mostly comprised of childhood friends. I very much enjoy this fact.
If you listen closely, you may notice shades of the Fleet Fox sound in some of Lord Huron's more dramatic songs. Still, there's enough of a steady mix of drama and upbeat melody to keep me coming back to this album again and again.
Check out the awesome video for "Time to Run" below. May I also highly recommend "Ends of the Earth" and "She Lit a Fire?"
