American roots band Lord Huron emerge with their first album. A concoction of chilled melodies, relaxing sounds but with an addictive tang which makes an invigorating listen.
Following their impressive Might EP the rising LA roots band Lord Huron release their first full length album on IAMSOUND Records. The musical and visual project created by lead singer Ben Schneider brings lush acoustic guitars and Midwestern-accented harmonies to the table. Touring extensively throughout 2012 they feel ready to release their new album.
Lonesome Dream begins chilled and ends chilled- the entire album feels like a journey through the countryside of Middle America, imagine a toned down Fleet Foxes. Tracks like Ends Of The Earth and The Man Who Lives Forever provide the relaxed vocal harmonies and slim acoustics to bind the album together. With the tracks like She Lit A Fire and I Will Be Back One Day to give the album some momentum and substance to give the album an essence worthy of legend.
This album shows that you donít need a lot of fancy equipment to make a good record; massive sounds arenít needed nor are multi-million pound budgets. All you need is an acoustic (of course some other instruments), inspiration and true love and feeling for the music to make a brilliant record.
One of the best roots records in a long time!
