Lord Huron

Lord Huron - She Lit A Fire
Lord Huron - The Man Who Lives Forever

Folk is a tired and tried genre, but every now and then a band comes along that breathes new life into the centuries old art form. Los Angeles-based, but with a Michigan Heart, Ben Schneider -- the mastermind behind Lord Huron -- put out a pair of EPs in 2010 and has finally arrived with a debut full-length -- last year's Lonesome Dreams. Upbeat without being bubbly, piled on top of layers and layers of organic instrumentation married with subtle electronic sequences, and rife with field sounds galore, Lonesome is an LP for the city dweller looking to escape without leaving.

* For the locals: Lord Huron will be performing at Gasparilla Music Festival on March 9th at Curtis Hixon Park in Tampa

Lonesome Dreams is available now, via IAMSOUND Records
