Editors’ Notes

It’s safe to assume that fans of My Morning Jacket will take an immediate liking to the first song on Lord Huron’s 2012 debut album, Lonesome Dreams. “Ends of the Earth” finds frontman Ben Schneider singing in a high, throaty croon similar to that of MMJ frontman Jim James (right down to the gratuitous amounts of reverb). But there are sublime spaghetti western undertones resonating here; they have more in common with Bob Dylan’s 1973 score for Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid than anything related to Ennio Morricone. Aside from using a similar amount of reverb, “Time to Run” sounds like Schneider is being backed by a different band. With no trace of the Old West, this song skitters on the layered percussion of Afrobeat grooves that recall Paul Simon’s Graceland while sunny melodies radiate from verse to chorus. This contrast between Americana and experimental folk is balanced throughout Lonesome Dreams. “I Will Be Back One Day” could be a Ryan Adams song, while “The Ghost on the Shore” shimmers with a Devendra Banhart–style wizardry.

Customer Reviews

Lonesome Dreams - a must hear, must recommend, and must purchase album of 2012

Brilliant. As a musician and a person who loves listening to creative music, this is amazing, The musicianship is second to none. They are like a more talented version of Mumford and Sons. Absolutely recommend!

Lonesome Dreams!!

After waiting for more then a year and a half, this album is well worth the wait. "She lit a fire" and "Man who lives forever" is even better then the live version, and Lonesome dream is by far the best on the album. Lord Huron, pppllleeaassee come to Toronto, even if I have to wait another year and a half.

No regrets

This is one of these albums to play when you have company and the fireplace is burning. Chances are that they will enquire about what they're hearing, it is one of these rare albums that appeal to a wide range of musical tastes, and as a bonus, there isn't a bad song to be found. So go ahead, you and your friends will not likely regret it.
