lord huron

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?"
