LORD HURON, Ends of the Earth (from Lonesome Dreams, 2012)
Here at Days of Music, diversity of sound is the name of the game. The previous post was about rapper/producer duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and now we’ll discuss a much anticipated debut LP release by folksy act Lord Huron (I’ve been waiting patiently for two years!) This L.A.-based band is headed up by singer-songwriter Ben Schneider and offers a sound that evokes the likes of Fleet Foxes (harmonies, yay!) but with more rhythm and energy. I’ll admit that the band doesn’t an bring an earth-altering uniqueness to the table, but hey, I’m hooked. Case in point, this song here. Just listen up. You’ll get it.
